Science  Enrichment for Fours and Transitional Kindergarten

Welcome to the magical world of science exploration!  This class will be all about problem solving, drawing conclusions, and experimentation with the natural world around us.  Science concepts will cover a broad range of topics, drawing from the children’s interests as the year goes on.  Activities will be hands-on, and lots of fun!

Reading Readiness for Fours and Transitional Kindergarten

Reading Enrichment focuses on letters, language, and beginning reading skills.  Using the “Handwriting Without Tears” program, we will work on letter formation for both upper and lower case letters.  Through games and art activities, phonics lessons will be reinforced.  As the year goes on, we’ll be using these skills to build words, practice rhyming words, and learn some word families.  We’ll make books and projects that we can bring home and read to our families!

Literature Club for Threes, Fours, and Transitional Kindergarten

Students will explore children's books from a variety of genres, including fantasy, folklore, realistic fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Students will learn about important authors and illustrators of quality children's books. Children's lives are enriched by literature. Picture books support children's understanding of the thoughts, feelings and motivations of other people, and teach them new facts about their world, which plays an important role in their linguistic, social, emotional and intellectual development.
