Welcome to Marshall School
Put away your backpack and get ready for a great day!
We start our day with circle time and a song!
We talk, do the calendar, and learn together.
Next, we do literacy centers.
We read, write, listen, and play!
Time to go outside for P.E.
We need to exercise our bodies as well as our brains.
Next comes math! We count, add, subtract, measure, graph, and think!
Time for lunch. I'm hungry! How about you?
Story time is always special.
Books are friends that we love to visit again and again.
Then it's time for learning centers.
Do you want to play in the blocks, housekeeping, art, science, math, computers, table toys, library, or sand table?
Let's recall and review our day.
Don't forget your backpacks!
See you tomorrow!
Hint! If you have a schedule that changes each day, then try this
idea. Take photos of the different events in your school day and
glue them to index cards. Attach a piece of magnetic tape to the back. Each day arrange
the cards on the magnetic board so students can "see" the routine.
