Mrs. Koerner’s Daily Schedule
8:30-8:45 Arrival and Tabletop Activities
8:45-9:15 Morning Meeting-We say our morning prayers, including the children’s intentions. We also do fingerplays, math/language activity, and music/movement. We read a story and/or discuss the topic we are currently working on. Any projects are also introduced and modeled if necessary.
9:15-9:45 Special-The children attend a daily special-Art, PE, library, computers, and music
9:45-10:00 Snack-Students take turns providing a daily snack. Keeping the environment in mind, cloth napkins and reusable plastic cups are used.
10:00-10:45 Exploration-Children have the opportunity to explore the different centers around the classroom. Activities are changed often in order to go along with the current topic of study and/or season. Students are also able to participate in daily academic and artistic projects that are frequently teacher facilitated-these include science experiments and journal entries.
10:45-11:10 Outside Time-We go outside to the playground every day, weather permitting (above 20 and not raining)
11:10-11:20 Dance and Dismissal-We end our morning with a dance or creative movement. Then the morning students are dismissed to their parents.
11:20-12:00 Lunch-Students provide their own daily lunches-refrigerator and microwave are available. All preschoolers eat together in one of the classrooms with Mrs. Koerner and Mrs. Smith.
12:00-1:00 Clean up/Bathroom/Rest Time-Students rest on their own blankets with the lights off and quiet music playing.
1:00-2:00 Exploration/Enrichment-Centers are opened and, since the afternoon group is smaller, we are able to do small group enrichment activities and games. Spanish is also provided one afternoon each week for 30 minutes.
2:00-2:15 Clean up-Students clean up the room and pack up their items to go home or move on to Wrap Around.
2:15-Dismissal-School day students get picked up and the wrap around students transition over to the aftercare room.
