Mrs. Teeter is the ELC's lead teacher who also teaches a four year old classroom. She is assisted by Miss Barb. Students in Mrs. Teeter's four-year-old classroom work on saying the alphabet, letter identification, counting, shapes. They listen to stories, have a class music time, and play at centers that foster their development. They also use apps on the Ipads to help with the skills they are learning. Recess time is used for gross motor development.
Students also work on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. Students begin to learn sight words and read with beginning readers. They work on number recognition, patterns, and letter and number formation with Handwriting Without Tears.
