Virtual Class at the Early Childhood Center

During distance learning this spring, the ECC/PLAY preschool students at Parkway and Paramus High School used Zoom during both small and large group sessions. The children participated in circle time activities like games, songs, movement, and dance. They also wrapped up learning their letters of the week, number sense, and more.

Teacher resources such as Screencastify and Epic books were used to record read alouds for parents and students to enjoy at their leisure. Students also enjoyed a camping theme and shared their backpacks of what they would need in a show and tell. Frogs were created together as an art project to join the trip. 

In science, the children learned about the density of liquids by creating their own lava lamps together in various containers. Th children used their own materials during open-ended virtual art time to create and share projects. The children also celebrated meeting every letter of the alphabet in a group reading and sing-a-long of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. 

The students reviewed skills, sang songs on Zoom, did show and tell, sent pictures of their art projects, learned technology using Zoom, and did a puppet show and a bedtime Zoom. Sounds like a ton of fun!

The ECC-4 children learned about insects and identifying insect body parts. They clapped out syllables in insect vocabulary words, identifying patterns using pictures of insects, making insects from food, reading stories about insects, and making insect crafts. The children worked on Father's Day activities including singing Father's Day songs and making surprises for dad at home!

The preschool (four-year-old) children planned a virtual preschool celebration with homemade graduation caps and a special surprise video to end the school year.
