Eagles Class allows time for both child-directed and teacher-directed activities. The experience our students gain in both social and academic skills facilitates their smooth transition to kindergarten. Our students are given the chance to help in the classroom by being assigned a new "job" daily, such as line leader, song chooser, or calendar helper.

 

A typical day in the Eagles class would include the following:

 

Circle Time: Learn about the activities for the day and introduce the current theme in the classroom

Free Choice: Explore the thematic stations within our three rooms

Outside Play: Play in the sandbox, play structure or swings, or participate in the weekly bike day

Closing Circle: Finish up with some music and dancing

 

Learning outside the classroom is also a part of the Eagles curriculum, which includes fun and educational field trips. Some field trips that we've attended include the fire station, The Storybook Theatre, the pumpkin patch or a farm.

The Explorers Group allows extended time for participating members of the Eagles class to continue classroom activities and take learning to a deeper level.  This extra time beyond the regular Eagles class schedule offers additional social time at the lunch table as well as a creative outlet with focused STEAM activities and process art.  Eagles students will stay after regular class time for this additional hour as part of the Explorers class.  The Explorers Group will meet from October through April.
