Pre-Primary (Trish and Sam)

Our early activities have focused on helping the children become more independent in the classroom.  They have practiced rolling mats and walking around the mats.  Carrying trays is a lot harder than it sounds.  If you aren't careful, things fall to the floor and make a big mess!  Our newest skills are squeezing a sponge and sweeping.  We get a lot of sweeping practice every time we have snack.  This independence gives the children such a sense of pride in a job well done.

Music with Derrick and rhythm with Susan are very popular.  Our class likes to sing and play the percussion instruments.  The children are already asking, "Is it a Derrick day?"
