Little Acorns 19 months to 27 months:
In our classroom we are excited to learn and explore new things. Our Little Acorns are learning letters, shapes and colors. We are working with blocks, puzzles and all sorts of different textures to stimulate our senses and our busy hands. We work in learning centers (small groups) and rotate throughout the morning. We go outside daily and are beginning Spanish in our classroom.
