This orientation is for teachers and parents of toddlers (2 and 3 years of age). Working with toddlers is fun, but it can also be exacerbating. This course is designed to help you create reasonable goals and introduce age-appropriate methods for toddlers. Knowing what to expect, planning for success, and selecting teaching methods and fun learning activities are the key to success, and we are always open to your suggestions so please use the parent-teacher forum if you would like to share.
The Kindergarten Virtues class is for 5-year-old children, and for those slightly younger or older as developmentally appropriate. Many printouts are available to help you conduct fun activities off-line.
The class focuses on the cultivation of virtues and the development of a noble character. Focus is on expanding the lessons learned in the preschool and toddler classes, but this class can be taken without having first taken the others. However, kindergarteners new to the One World School might find it helpful to take the preschool and toddler course in addition to the kindergarten class. The classes build upon each other.
The kindergarten class continues the process of learning by playing, art, music, singing, dancing, and physical activities. Additional age-appropriate lessons in English language arts, early math and science, and other subjects are available.
Most kindergarteners need help working online. However, they can quickly develop the skills to work independently with guidance and supervision. An adult must guide and encourage the child every step of the way.
In Person Classes
It is strongly advised, especially during the first few classes for a parent or guardian to accompany the child. The adult does not have to be actively invovled in the lesson but the mere presence of a loved one is often enough to calm the child.
