There is a focus on child initiated themes and activities while ensuring that standards are met in accordance with NYS Early Learning Guidelines. The 4/5’s continue their work with gross motor skills, and fine motor skills, with a focus on preparing for writing. The 4/5’s class works on letter recognition and phonemic awareness, numbers 1 -20, calendar, and weather. They also review colors, days of the week, and do more in depth crafts, activities, and lessons.
