Literacy Enrichment Program Overview Runs from September to June (Four to Kindergarten Age) Monday thru Friday.
The Literacy Program is designed to extend your child’s learning experience. Our program’s focus will be on Reading-Readiness (I.E. – Letter Identification, both Upper & Lowercase, Phonetics, Writing Process, Group- Reading etc.) We will do many other challenging activities to broaden our children’s minds as well.
Every week, we will focus on one book and author, a letter and math concept. (These will be listed by week in our monthly newsletter) We will develop activities to broaden the highlighted story and make it meaningful. The children also participate in counting the number of days of school with money. This exposes them to money concepts and well as counting. They look forward to the 100th day of school where we have a big party and count by tens to 100. This is a favorite activity for all the children!
In addition, the children each have a journal that they write, color and draw in throughout the year. It amazes both them and us how much their work grows and changes during one school year.
Through experience and research, it has been found that children need structure in their school environment. Our Literacy Program is structured, but activities are not held to specific time constraints. If the children are learning and more time is needed for the activity, then the activity will be extended. Therefore, the times listed are approximations.
