Welcome to the Five's Room!

While your child is in this room, he/she will have the opportunity to learn through a wide range of experiences. Our goal is to prepare your child for kindergarten by continuing with and building upon his/her educational experiences. 

Important Information About the Five's Room

Lesson plans incorporate the Handwriting without Tears curriculum which includes other components such as math, science, and social-emothional activities in addition to the handwriting section. We also use the Illinois Early Learning and Development guidelines to assure that activities are developmentally appropriate. Emphasis is placed on kindergarten readiness skills.
