To continue building our wonderful community of families and classrooms, we will be writing weekly to highlight one of our wonderfully unique classrooms!
This week, we begin with Wads B – Miss Julia and Miss Katie! Miss Julia is our lead teacher and recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree from UCCS in psychology. She has been with Little Sprouts since May and loves art, such as painting and crafting! Miss Katie is our assistant teacher and has been with Little Sprouts since July. She has worked with children for seven years and loves fall, reading, and music.
Wads B works with ages 18 months to 24 months and focuses on developing social skills, establishing friendships, and helping children expressing themselves while encouraging them to become more vocal, and working together to improving language skills.
One new addition to the Wads B routine has been reading time during transitions, such as going from indoor play to outdoor play or from indoor play to meal times. This short reading time helps the children see themselves as readers, as well as increase literacy skills. Transitions are hard, and this pleasant time helps lower stress, and get children into a routine.
Wads B has also taken the information given by parents in their parent questionnaire to make an awesome display outside of their classroom – check it out and get to know the students in Wads B! Also outside of the classroom is an awesome display of sensory and motor exploration – painting our table! We mixed colors together to see what they would create, and had a great time doing it. Check out their work in the hallway!
