Small Group time is a very important aspect of the ABC Academy Program.
At 12:30 each day the children are divided into "Small Groups" of about 8
children. These twenty minutes of the school day are primarily concerned
with enhancing the skills a child needs to make a successful transition to
kindergarten. The children are afforded one-on-one time with the same
teacher and are surrounded by children of similar age and/or ability.
|A younger group will be focused on earlier development, such as general
socialization, sharing, gross motor skills, verbal skills, feelings and
emotions, etc. |
|A slightly older group will be focused on numbers, shapes, colors,
matching, same versus different, opposites, cutting, letters A, B, C, D, the
five senses, etc.|
|Our Pre-K groups will be focused on learning to recognize and write the
alphabet (letters A through Z), recognize and write numbers 1 through 30, fine
motor skills, cutting, concentration, writing their names, etc.|
