Arrival/Outside Time
As children enter the classroom and transition away from their grown-ups, one of the Pre-Kindergarten teachers greets the children and assists them in hanging up and/or storing their belongings. As students complete this task, they join their classmates out on the playground (weather permitting) where the other Pre-Kindergarten teacher is supervising the outdoor exploration. As the year progresses, it is expected that the children will be able to complete the morning arrival routine independently.
