"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."--Mark Van Doren
Our Kindergarten Enrichment Program Is entering into the wonderful world of winter. We will continue our "themes" each week based on the letter and sound of study. We will also continue to discover and explore through science activities. Art and movement are another important component of each week's activities. We will explore our winter wonderland with nature walks and recess in all weather!
Teacher Sharon and I work closely with Teachers Kara and Chris to individualize academic and social growth in each of our students. We have been creating many stories using writing prompts and illustrations. The children have their own individual word rings that they create and then illustrate. Our math capabilities are rapidly growing as we practice patterns, equations and units.
The Kindergarten Enrichment children love to listen to stories and are enjoying making predictions. We carry our stories over our three day" Enrichment Week" practicing information recall, patience, and fostering a love of reading.
