Leslie Diamond is a preschool teacher with over 20 years of experience in the classroom and over 2 years on Zoom.
She has taught preschool classrooms in Newton MA, Austin TX and Danville CA, before seamlessly adapting her teaching skills to multiple Zoom classrooms that she has now taught since March, 2020.
For children this age to sit for a full hour requires fun challenges, engaging learning opportunities, social connections and of course, lots of fun!
Leslie brings that and more to her preschool classroom.
Each action packed class passes very quickly and is guaranteed to engage your children with no parental assistance.
It is designed to give caretakers a 1 hour break from parenting while your children learn and engage!
Our Zoom classes involves lots of class participation.
Even remotely the children quickly connect with one another and become friends.
Every day at the beginning we announce who has a class job that day.
The first job of the day is calendar helper.
This is an opportunity to practice counting, literacy, and mastering the days of the week.
The letter of the day is picked out of a box.
We learn its sound, we list words beginning with the letter, and learn how to make the lower-case version.
95% of written English is with lower-case letters, so that's what we concentrate on.
Every day we learn interesting facts about three states, and the "state picker" selects their favorite.
We then glue it on our big map of the United States.
Close up, the children watch our leopard gecko, Lizzie Lizard, eat 3-4 juicy mealworms every day!
Then every six weeks, when she sheds her skin, it is quite a spectacle.
The "Game Picker" selects a game such as the Memory Game, What's in the Box?, Animal Sounds and lots more.
These games provide fun and challenging ways to hone concentration and memory skills.
Step-by-step, the children learn sign language to popular songs, including Doe-a-Deer, What a Wonderful World, You've Got a Friend in Me, and more.
Mastering a useful skill like this promotes confidence and pride in young children.
Halfway through Zoom, the "Movement Picker" selects a dance activity.
We all stand up, shake out our legs, and do The Chicken Dance, play Freeze Dance, the Macarena and many more fun choices!
Kids LOVE science experiments, and we do too!
Wait till you see a balloon being blown up by itself and rainbows appearing before your eyes!
At the end of our hour, the "Story Picker" gets to select from three carefully selected books.
Everybody gets comfortable and cuddles up at story time.
We have birthday parties, holiday celebrations, directed drawing, talent shows and every Thursday, Show-and-Tell!
We have one class each weekday, at 8:30am PT.
Our classes are designed to give parents a break from parenting for an hour. All the children need is paper and crayons.
Click on the button at the top or bottom of the page to contact us, and we'll get in touch with you to see if we're a good fit.
We've found that children find comfort from routine, so our Zoom sessions are highly structured. We do most of the features in the list above every day, and others one or more times a week. The hour flies by!
Letters, numbers, social-emotional skills, geography, dance moves, sign language and so much more. They'll even learn a few good jokes!
