GET SET FOR SCHOOL
In Get Set for School, students use multisensory activities for discovery play and active learning to become active participants in their Pre-K education. Teachers love the diversity of skills that can be taught with each multisensory tool. Here are just a few of them, and how they are used in class to drive engaging, hands-on learning.
Directed actions, multisensory tools, and active exercises draw children into a lesson and help them learn new words. The teacher introduces objects or pictures, and children touch them, point to them, and say what they are. Through the “I Say, We Say, You Say” approach to lessons, children develop both listening and speaking skills.
Get Set for School nurtures students' innate math skills, engaging them with manipulatives and active lessons that teach them how to observe and explore the mathematical dimensions of their world. A concentration on number concepts enables them to learn more advanced concepts in subsequent years.
Get Set for School addresses physical, social, emotional, and cognitive skills, which are crucial for school readiness and will meet children where they are. The curriculum uses play-based, interactive, and multimodal lessons to teach developmentally appropriate social skills throughout the curriculum.
Get Set for School helps children build language skills in context so that new letters (symbols) and words have meaning and relevance. Because reading and writing skills support each other and develop in tandem, the learning area gives children the foundation in letter recognition and letter sound recognition to build reading skills.
