EXTENDED TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN/PRE-SCHOOL CLASS
In this program, we use the Creative curriculum for pre-school to meet the California Learning Foundations. The Creative Curriculum embeds leaning academic skills, language development as well as social/emotional skills.
We use studies to investigate topics that children are interested in such as Trees, Balls, Clothes, and Pets.
Our day includes interest areas, question of the day, large and small group instruction, read-alouds and mighty minutes. Students are participating actively during the school day and their instructional program is connected to foundational skills, science, social studies, art, mathematics , stories, physical education and outdoor activities.
The ETK/PCC program is composed of one ETK classroom teacher, one PCC teacher, one Teacher Assistant and one Special Education Trainee. Class composition is 16 ETK students and 8 PCC students. Students attend school Monday through Friday for 6 hours per day.
