Preschool with Ms. Clay, Ms. Minando and Mrs. Dixon

Welcome to PreK with Ms. Clay and Ms. Minando.  We are the co-teachers of  Room 108, Full Day - Blended PreK.  We are a triple threat when we add Mrs. Dixon who is our classroom assistant. We have a diverse group of learners with differing abilities and different needs. We will have fun learning and growing together as we meet the needs of all the wonderful learners in our class.
We implement the Creative Curriculum which includes many different themes/studies.  Inside of the classroom, learning is incorporated into the preschool day which includes morning meeting, small groups, gross motor (music and movement or outdoor play), interest areas, read alouds, quiet time, circle time,  art and nutrition.  Students rotate to different interest areas around the room. They are the library center, sand and water, math, puzzles, toys and games, science, blocks, writing, art, listening center, computers and housekeeping.  We even extend our learning outside of the classroom by going on field trips throughout the year.   
Remote learning will include much of the same. To every extent possible, will bring as many elements of the school day that we implement inside the classroom to our virtual classroom. Even virtual field trips. We will make sure to include a lot of learning and a lot of fun!  Welcome to our world!
