Pre-K Curriculum

With summer approaching, our Pre-K friends are finishing the last of their curriculum. Throughout the school year, we use a wonderful kindergarten-readiness curriculum called Handwriting Without Tears. It is a nationally recognized curriculum, and the children LOVE it! Below are pictures of them working on "mat man". Mat man is used to help children learn how to create the shapes that form the letters. A little imagination and coloring never hurt either!

Mat Man's Body Parts

Our Pre-K teacher Ms. Shanice helps the children with holding the crayon/pencil, counting "how many" body parts, drawing the shapes and explaining why the shapes are used.

Look what I did! My mat man is named "9,000"
