3s AFTER THREE
HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR fall TRIMESTER
Throughout the trimester we have been playing and having fun in our 3s after Three program! We begin our hour together with a relaxed snack, followed by a mix of art projects, playground time, and free play. The children work in a small group and form friendships outside of their regular classroom environment.
Some of our highlights include the children working together and using simple ingredients to make their own play-dough; exploring and using a variety of art materials to make their individual expressive creations; and using their personal experiences and imaginations to transform the classroom environment into places of adventure - such as building a train out of chairs and using this vehicle to transport themselves and their friends throughout the city and beyond. While in this process of play, the children have been acting out their understanding of their world and further honing their social and problem solving skills as they negotiate roles, and confront challenges, like needed subway repairs, that arise along the way.
