Theme Based Learning

Bloom’s theme based learning approach has been designed to offer your child fun and exciting play opportunities that align with New York State Early Education Standards. Through daily instruction and monthly and weekly thematic units your child will be immersed in activities exposing him to both upper and lower case letter identification, letter sounds, colors, numbers and counting, shapes, matching, sorting, repetition and rhyme, scissor skills, fine and gross motor development, story telling, illustration and fine arts, following directions., introduction to Spanish and much more! An outline of our 2018-2019 thematic units is below.
