What does the schedule mean?

Greeting is the time of day when students are entering the classroom.  Each student is addressed and welcomed into the classroom.  Book bags and folders are put away as students set a positive tone to their school day.

Breakfast/Lunch/Snack are important times where students come together to socialize and practice healthy eating habits.  Breakfast occurs during the morning drop-off window prior to the instructional day.  Church Street Elementary offers free breakfast and lunch for all students.  It is very important that you check the monthly calendar for your snack day.  If you are not able to provide snack on the date assigned you can contact me through telephone or e-mail so that we can make other arrangements for the students.

Tips for packing a healthy snack:

  • Send enough for 22 children
  • No candy
  • No items that need to be frozen, refrigerated, or heated in a microwave.

Opening is when the events of the day are reviewed with students.  What we will be learning, what events are happening, and more are discussed to prepare students for the day.

Large Group is when the whole class is engaged in learning various skills.  From colors to calendar, weather to patterns.  Songs and books are read to help build the foundation of learning to prepare them for kindergarten.

Story Time is when books are read.  Story Time is more than exposure to books but also comprehension skills, number and sequencing stories, rhyming and more are introduced during this time.

Music & Movement is when students express themselves through creative movement or learn to copy movements from teachers and peers.  Music is used to support our topic of interest as well as to increase brain activity to help students retain better focus throughout their day.

Small Group and Rotations are times when the class is broken down into individualized groups to focus on activities to increase their level of understanding in various core areas.  Small Group and Rotations allow for each student to receive instruction to meet their academic needs.

Large Group Literacy focuses on reading, writing, and retelling.  The class as a whole participates in reading chart stories and large print books, practices activities allowing them to strengthen their writing skills, and retelling to display literary comprehension.  

PlanningWork Time, and Recall Times allow students to create a plan of where they wish to play within the classroom, follow through on their plan, and then discuss the execution of their plan with adults and peers.

Phonological Awareness is a time of day when early reading skills are strengthened.  We begin preparing their listening skills, identification and creation of rhymes, letter sound identification, sentence segmenting, syllable segmenting, and more to prepare them for reading in kindergarten.

Closing Activity is when the events of the day are reviewed and discussed.  Closing Activity also prepares students for what will be happening at school the next day.
