The addition of Soaring to our pre-k program has been well received by the children and their parents. Soaring is the Monday enrichment class that allows children to continue their discovery of the wonderful world of books.
Reading is such an important skill to develop in children. The more young children are read to, the greater their interest in mastering reading. Reading out loud exposes children to proper grammar and phrasing, and helps young children develop vital language skills. It enhances the development of their spoken language skills and their ability to express themselves verbally.
Through books, children learn about other people and places, both real and imaginary. Through stories, they meet new friends and characters. Books can encourage children to be helpful, kind and show how to resolve conflict. At preschool, story time is a group activity that offers children the opportunity to sit quietly and be respectful in a group and also socialize and share with each other what they have heard.
Our Soaring class continues to nurture this skill in a fun filled day.
Soaring allows the children the opportunity to…
- Hear the story “Not a Box” and discover a box is just a box . . . unless it’s not a box. From mountain to rocket ship, a small rabbit shows that a box will go as far as the imagination allows. The children are allowed the opportunity to see where their imagination takes them.
Watch as our children soar ahead and discover the joy of reading.
