Butterfly Classroom

 

During the ages of 4-5, children are continuing to learn about themselves, and their feelings. They have a growing vocabulary, and are ever more creative and imaginative. This causes them to ask more questions, and begin to think more logically. They are energetic, and often silly. Their learning styles are often more individualized by this time. Their writing becomes more proficient during this time as well.

In the Butterfly classroom, they focus on one letter per week, and all of the literacy activities and academic worksheets will pertain to that letter. Following Creative Curriculum, the children will also work on:

  • Writing and recognition of capital and lower case letters
  • Shape, color, and number recognition
  • Spelling and writing names
  • Phonics
  • Patterns and sequencing
  • Problem solving
  • Development of fine motor skills through the use of scissors and other activities
