Sage STEAM Academy believes that the best learning methods for this age group are play-based and experiential.
Our activities help our preschoolers to build skills in a variety of areas such as pre-reading literacy, math foundation, creative expression, art, and science. The lessons are interactive and engaging, with simple verbal directions, appealing graphics and music and movement within their very own virtual classroom. The preschool scope and sequence is organized around themes such as colors, shapes, numbers, letters, weather and calendar activities, These are introduced during Circle Time and/or with a story or song, and are followed by activities tied to the theme.
What should a Preschooler be learning?
Many preschoolers can probably do household tasks like toileting, opening a tube of toothpaste, pouring a cup of water, and undoing buttons, and you have likely watched your child happily running, jumping, hopping, and catching a ball. Equally as likely, your child has also begun more academic pursuits like telling stories, singing songs or short poems, recognizing letters and numbers, beginning to understand time, and naming some colors.
Sage STEAM Academy's goal is to prepare your child for kindergarten—academically, behaviorally, and socio-emotionally. Here are some knowledge and skills that your Preschooler should be learning to help as you plan at home:
To identify some letters of the alphabet and some common sight words
To identify words that rhyme
To write his/her first name with uppercase and lowercase letters
To speak in complete sentences
To repeat his/her full name, phone number, address, and birthday
To grip writing implements (i.e., pencil, marker, crayon, chalk) correctly
To count to ten
To classify objects based on shape, size, and quantity
To use glue, scissors, paint, and other art supplies
To bounce a ball
To play alone or with another child, focused on one activity for a maximum of ten minutes
