GYM FACILITY ON PREMISE
Providing the children daily large motor activities is important to us. Our wonderful outdoor and indoor play spaces enables us to provide this much needed activity on a daily basis regardless of weather.
The use of the gym also enables us to offer special activities, such as Sports Classes right on premise after school.
Interactive Read Aloud Book Club
Our director will encourage Shining Stars and Sparks students to dig deeper into stories, scaffold them to make inquires, ask questions, and discover a new way to view novels. Sometimes reading is for pleasure, and sometimes we want to dig a little deeper! Through interactive reading sessions, Ms, Kaye will be utilizing different strategies to:
• Develop background knowledge necessary for understanding a topic
• Target vocabulary development
• Demonstrate prosody
• Learn how to inference, make judgments and use meta-cognition strategies
• Integrate higher order questioning skills
• Develop connections to a text (text-to-self, world or another text)
• Meet academic content standards at a students frustration level
Additional Fee payable to LHCP
Along with the interactive read-aloud class, our director is excited to offer Spanish classes to the Shining Stars and Sparks. It is never too soon to begin these classes with young children.
