Bringing Learning to Life is our objective at “IC” KIDS.
A learning experience for 3 to 5 year ols who have not attended kindergarten.
(Must be 3 before December and be fully potty trained)
“IC” KIDS was established in September 2005. The curriculum has been created and established for your toddler, both Arabic and English. The curriculum is meant to help your child get ready for kindergarten at an advanced level. Our goal is for each child to leave the class not only recognizing the letters but able to read and write as well. For those who are able to write, recognize, and understand the phonic sounds of each letter, they will begin to put letters together to make new words. They will begin to start reading and writing three letter words such as cat, bat, fat, hat, and mat (introduction to word families). An art project for each English and Arabic letter as well as writing each letter making learning more exciting. Hands on activities teach basic math, social studies, and science concepts. We focus on monthly themes and seasonal changes. For example, we made little kabas and Eid cards. The children pretended to walk around the Kabah, understand mount Safa and Marwa. Learning about Prophet Ibrahim and Ismaeel, celebration of Eid-ul-adha. It is an enjoyment to see the children come in dressed up with enthusiasm to celebrate our Muslim holiday together with there fellow classmates.
Children have a half an hour of movement time: “parachute play”, “shake, shake, shake the bean bag”, “musical chairs”, “animal action”, “freeze”, hoola hoops, catching and throwing ball with a partner, much more….
