Transitional Classroom is a place where toddlers receive
their first preschool
experience. The children come to school two days a
week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Here the children learn
to eat by themselves, use scissors, tape and glue, "read" stories,
and share with one another.
Outside they run, jump
and play, and practice being little scientists by
learning about their environment. Each child receives
a home visit by their teacher two times a month when
she shares information with parents. Parents are
encouraged to try different activities with their
child to help
them learn various things. They practice singing,
learning new words, and making projects. The children
in the transitional classroom have already had the
benefit of receiving home
based services through Early Head Start.
children are talking together while looking at the
computer. One child knows how
to use the mouse to point at items on the screen.
This develops language, fine motor skills (use of
small muscles in the hands).
