  • Circle time We will be singing our hello song, taking attendance, yoga, talking about the letter of the week and the colour of the month, doing mindful breath work, and choosing a positive focus word for the day. The children take turns to complete daily jobs per child like the line leader, calendar, weather, and season. Activities for the day will be explained and monthly theme-based books read. This will also be when children present their show-and-tell.

  • All-group teaching activity Themed lessons related to literacy, vocabulary, math, science, etc. are presented by the teacher to the whole class, with intention to meet multiple intelligences and learning styles.

  • Craft / play time The class will create a craft together once a week (with an adult supervising each table). Once their craft is complete, they have free-play time. A craft centre is available daily for those children that wish to complete thier own small crafts.

  • Lunch / bathroom break Before lunch, children will be taken to the washroom to wash their hands and use the facilities. The whole group will then have lunch together and be prompted with some French vocabulary for the food they are each eating.

  • Play time / small group teaching time Students will have time to play freely in one of the available centres. Children will be asked to come and work on small-group learning activities with the teacher and the other adults in the classroom. At the end of this time, children will be asked to help clean up all the toys.

  • Music and movement time Students will be exploring music and movement (in the classroom and in the school gymnasium)through teacher-led activities, such as singing, dancing, instrument playing, rhythm exploration and games.

  • Circle time / farewell We will read a short story, talk about the day and sing our goodbye song.
