EduKids Early Childhood Education Centers: Focusing On Literacy
Posted November 30, 2009on:
As we move forward into our school year, you will notice that our main focus in curriculum revolves around literacy. As parents and educators, we understand the importance of reading to children everyday.
In our classrooms, we will be reading to children in large groups, small groups, and one on one. We will encourage children to handle books, turn pages, and read to each other. We will also be doing other important work such as writing together. In the preschool classrooms, you will see morning messages, word walls, language charts, children’s names and writing centers. In our toddler rooms, you will see teachers writing in front of children to show the formation of print, children’s names, pictures with words, and posted recipes. Everyday, your children will experience activities that develop language such as singing, finger plays, and games.
The most important job you have as a parent is to read, read, read! It is so simple and yet the most effective way to prepare children for a life long journey in learning.
