Teachers walk children into school and help them start the day. Children 
choose activities in the front of the room: art, sensory table, playdough or clay, science center, library, writing center, puzzles, games, building sets, blocks, or the "caves."

The whole class comes together to share music, movement, puppets and literature as well as new information relating to class activities, interests and projects.

9:15 - 9:30 Focus activities and Gym 

The teachers will divide the children into groups to facilitate an activity at a learning center or in the gym. The activities and groupings are chosen based on curriculum goals as well as the individual goals and interests of the children. Teachers may bring an open ended question to the group to spark curiosity and encourage exploration and inquiry related to the activity. At times a specific skill will be addressed through play based activities. One group will start in the gym before their focus activity, and others will rotate in throughout free play after their focus groups. Large motor skill development is facilitated by teachers through encouragement and engagement in motor challenges and games.
