Room one is a 6:1:2 integrated class room. The students are between two and three years of age. We work on many skills throughout the school day during individual instruction times as well as group activities. Group activities include art/ sensory activities, gym time, music/ circle time, small group centers and play activities. Play times are an important part of our learning at this age. We teach appropriate play skills with a variety of classroom toys, as well as how to play next to or with someone else.
We focus on early social skills including turn taking, sharing and building attention spans to increase the amount of time students are able to play with a particular toy. Music is also an important part of our day in room one. Many students respond well to music and song, and it is often incorporated into instruction times, reinforcement intervals and transitions throughout the day. Room one is a busy room where learning is fun all day long.
