Wondering what kindergarten looks like at Avon Maitland District School Board?
The Avon Maitland District School Board kindergarten programs centre around the image of the child as competent and capable of complex thinking. This planning is built around the notion that a kindergarten classroom is a place of wonder, a place to explore the world, ask questions, develop theories, and present learning through many different modes.
A Typical Day in a Kindergarten Classroom
A typical day in a kindergarten classroom begins with students signing in and taking responsibility for their belongings and routines. Greeted by their early learning team consisting of a teacher and a designated early childhood educator, the children typically choose which area of the classroom they wish to begin their play based inquiry time. Throughout these inquiry times, the educators work with small groups of students and individuals to provide precision teaching in developmentally appropriate literacy and numeracy skills.
At strategic times throughout the day, the children may be called to meet as a whole group in knowledge building circles or community meetings. At this time the educators support the students to share their learning, their theories and ideas so others can become excited about the learning that is happening across the room.
