Mixed Up Chameleon
The name of the game in this classroom is potty training and sharing! Self help skills are essential as a 2-year-old in our program starts to learn the school routine. This class walks on a rope to the hallway bathrooms, to the lunch room, to the gym and to various playgrounds we have on our property. We run a 1-5 ratio in the potty training 2-year-old classroom so the teachers can focus on the teaching while there is a back up, self help teacher to help with potty training and potty accidents.
Curriculum starts to get a little longer: circle time with lesson theme concepts to be learned. Recall is used a lot to remember what the children explored the day before. Handwriting Without Tears is used to start with learning to manipulate writing tools to write names, basic line cutting skills are learned, colors, shapes, numbers 1-10, counting to 20, alphabet, letters in the child's name, name recognition and many fun science/experimental learning opportunities! Can't forget the fun sensory things we do and reading is the focal point of everything we do at the Nest!
