Specials

Hello Parents!

My name is Susan Young and I’m so excited about being the Specials teacher this year.  We have 4 areas of enrichment activities provided for the students.  They include Music, Physical Education, Library and Computer.  The 3 and 4 year old classes participate in all areas, while the 2 year old class enjoys music and P.E. only. 

 

Music Notes

This year in Music the students will experience music through a variety of ways.  They will be given the chance to play different instruments and hear various types of music. They will learn to move, play and sing to the rhythm of songs and sounds we hear all around us. 

          Tuesday- Ms. Pam's Class & Ms. Gina's Class

          Wednesday- Ms. Sharlene's Class

          

 

P.E. Place

This year in P.E. the students will be given the chance to work on developing their gross motor skills and learn about the importance of exercise.  I will be following a new curriculum called Kid-Fit. The curriculum focuses on nine different body systems (heart, lungs, muscles, bones, etc.). The children will learn basic anatomy, how to take care of their bodies and why it's important and how to make healthy eating choices. Kid-Fit also teaches that exercise is fun, that eating healthy foods keep their bodies happy and that rest is needed to grow and be strong.

Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately on P.E. days in comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes so they are able to run and move.

          Monday- Ms. Gina’s Class & Ms. Pam’s Class

Library Nook and Computer Corner

During library/ computer time, the students will spend part of their time exploring books, puzzles, manipulatives, puzzles, and listening to a story.  The other time they will be given the opportunity to use the computers.  Students will be playing a variety of educational games, learning the techniques of keyboard and mouse while reinforcing educational concepts.
