The 1’s Class
Children in our Ones classroom are exposed to a variety of nursery rhymes, finger plays, songs and stories to help develop and expand on their growing vocabulary. They work on a variety of early concepts, such as numbers, colors, opposites, shapes, animal names and sounds and identifying body parts. The teachers introduce basic Bible stories and simple Bible concepts such as “God made me” and “God loves me.” The Ones explore with a wide variety of art supplies and spend lots of time on our playground developing their gross motor skills.
We have a very fun and exciting day with the Ones!
