幼稚園 (Preschool)

At the preschool age, we still spend most of our time on activities. The biggest difference between the toddler and preschool age is the introduction of alphabet letters and numbers. The language used in class begins to expand a lot as children are able to grasp more complex concepts.

Most of the language is still taught through interactive songs and games. We do not focus on writing yet in early preschool. Most children do not yet possess the fine motor skills needed. Trying to focus on writing before they are ready will create stress for the child and could lead a child to dislike English. But in later preschool, if children are ready, we will begin to focus more on phonics and writing.

For first-time preschool classes, I use the book WELCOME to Learning World PINK. This book covers the daily life of a 3-4 year old child. It uses chants, dialogs and songs with fun actions to introduce communication between mother and child. The daily scenes include get up in the morning, have breakfast, go to a playground, put the toys away, take a bath, put on pajamas, and go to bed. It also has an attached “Arts & Crafts” which is fun for kids to do. In addition to the textbook, I use lots and lots of picture books to supplement the material.
