    Daily routine: A daily routine is followed in class to guide learning.
    • Welcome/Hello: The teacher establishes student focus, introduces new activities, practices counting and patterns and sets the routine for the day. 
    • Small-Group time:  Students focus on specific learning targets with teacher support and direction. 
    • Choice time: Students "play with purpose," as they practice independence, social, large motor and fine motor skills.  We have new and rotating activities each week in the areas of sensory, fine motor, art, blocks, dramatic play, science, games, writing, math, large motor and reading.  We have outdoor time when weather permits and gym time when available.  A simple snack of crackers and water is served each day during choice time.  
    • Clean-up time: Students practice shared responsibility and organization.
    • Large Group and/or Circle time: Students learn to follow direction and participate in group activities.
    • Story time:  Students learn literacy skills and learn to expand on books by acting out stories and participating in related activities. 
    • Dismissal/Good Bye: The teacher establishes student focus and prepares students for independence outside the classroom.
