3’s Daily Schedule

8:00am-9:00am  Open Play with intentional setups*

*Activities that promote learning in all different domains. Can scope from fine motor, STEM concepts and even creative art. Ideas can be puzzles, building materials, playdough setups, open ended art activities where no set outcome is expected.

9:00-9:10am Clean up time!

9:10-9:20 Gathering Time* 

*Activities like reading a story, doing a puppet show, or even some music and movement. Look up “Music and Movement” songs on spotify or youtube and boogie away. This is gross motor strength and some getting our crazies out.  

 Judaic Circle Time Songs

9:20-9:35 Snack Time

9:35-10:30 Outside Time

10:30-11:15 Open Play*

*Take this time to ask your child lots of questions about their play. Make them open ended question that require more than a “yes” or “no” answer. Expand on what they’re saying and encourage the conversations. Take the open play times to do screen free activities, though we understand that some screen time will probably happen.

11:15-11:30 Gathering Time*

*Make this a calmer gathering time. Wind down with some yoga, read a story or even listen to one on tape. Spotify and youtube have great options.

11:30-12:00 Lunch Time

12:00-1:30/2:00 Nap Time

2:00-2:40 Outside Time

2:40-3:15 Snack Time/Open Play

3:15-3:25 Clean up Time

Activity Ideas

·        Make playdough!
            Best playdough recipe ever: 

2 cups plain flour

2 TBS vegetable oil

1/2 cup salt

2 TBS cream of tartar

1 to 1.5 cups of hot water (adult part only, add in 1/2 cup increments stirring in between until consistency is just right) Add coloring to the water for fun colored playdough!

·        Clothes pins (the wooden or plastic kind) and paper plates or cardboard. Write numbers on the plates or cardboard and try to match the number of clothes pins to the number in the middle

·        Magna tiles, blocks, train tracks and legos are all great fine motor, STEM, and spatial reasoning tools

·        READ! READ! READ to your child!

·        Cover the floor with an old sheet or newspaper, tape the paper to the underside of a lower table, and paint upside down!

·        Sidewalk chalk, especially on wet ground!

·        Open a restaurant in your pretend kitchens. This promotes money sense, people skills, and creative pretend play.
