Welcome to Mrs. Sykes’ PreK-4!
In our class we focus on reading, writing, and number concepts through 10. The students learn a new letter each week, as well as focusing on numbers, shapes, and colors. We implement these concepts in a variety of ways through all of the core subject areas.
We have different themes each week as well. Some topics include: back-to-school, apples, farm, pumpkins, Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, seasons, arctic animals, ocean, Valentine’s Day, Lent, and Easter to name a few! We are constantly differentiating our learning to meet various needs. Our instruction time is generally center-based, with occasional whole group lessons and activities.
In addition to core instruction, it is very important that students learn life skills during this time. Everything from sharing, make-believe, fine and gross motor skills, manners, and patience are covered on a daily basis. We center our classroom around God and teach faith and to love one another as Jesus loves us.
