Academy 3 is a continuation of our toddler program, but a lot has changed. Now our children are forming phrases and are verbally expressing themselves. We begin to see evidence of cooperative play between the classmates.
Now our weekly activities are done in small groups led by an educator. Letters, numbers, shapes, and patterns are explored. Practical life skills such as dressing and undressing, and toileting are being accomplished.
The learning experience is being enriched with the concepts of language, letters of the week, vocabulary words of the week, art activity, fine motor experiences such as coloring, and painting are a weekly reality.
In this room our Friday show and tell tradition is becoming more interactive with the educator asking questions that encourage each child to express himself in front of his peers.
