The first of each month you will get a calendar that will give you a small idea of what they will be learning and talking about that month. Please understand there is no way we can put everything they are doing on one sheet of paper. However, they have a lesson / activity in each of the following five area each day.

Music & Movement – during this time they will be working on memorization of songs and rhymes. This is also the early stages of reading. They will also work on muscle development as well as coronation, by doing simple things like rolling a ball back and forth to each other or jumping / hopping.

Language – This will include stories being read to the class. Reading is one of the most important things parents can do with children of all ages to help them succeed in school. Talking to in “big” voices (not baby talking) is extremely important for language development as well.

Socialization – At this age is one on one play begins and learning to work / play in a social setting is very important for many reasons.

Cognitive & Math – Working on puzzles is actually a math activate & also allows kids to work on hand eye coronation. So, buy the puzzles despite the pieces being all over. In this age group they will work on counting 1-10 as well. This area can also include things like looking at pictures and naming the people and things in the pictures.

This class is busy and each day is so very different from the day before. Here at TTP we do our absolute best to start the steps towards a successful formal education.

Social & emotional development – this is when they will learn about sharing, using words to tell others what they want / need, interacting with other, and so much more.

Oral Language – This is done all day. One example is after reading a story talking about the story, who did what and what happened first, in the middle, or at the end of the story. Even talking about what they did on vacation or about their pets or siblings at home. Just giving them all chances to talk and tell stories.

Physical Development – This is why playing outside and running, jumping, hopping, and so on come into play. As well as dancing in the classroom to some great children’s music.
