We had fun in Reading Enrichment!

This week we read a sequencing book, “It’s Pumpkin Time!” by Zoe Hall.  We then discussed how pumpkins are grown from seed to pumpkin.  We next did several rhyming activities and played together. It was a great afternoon!


Another great afternoon in Enrichment!

Today we read  “Big Pumpkin” by Erica Silverman. We really enjoyed playing “Pin The Piece on the Pumpkin”.  We laughed a lot at the silly looking pumpkin we made.  We also enjoyed other games including “Who?What?When?Where?Why” which is a question game played with play-doh.  It was a great afternoon full of laughs!    


We had a food-filled and fun-filled afternoon! Happy (Almost) Halloween!

Today in Kids Cooking Afternoon Enrichment class we had a great time making crescent mummy hot dogs and witch hat cookies!  After having fun making them, we had a Halloween Party and ate the delicious food we made.  We next read a Halloween book and played the Toilet Paper Mummy Game!  We all had a great afternoon!

“Room on the Broom” was a hit in Reading Enrichment today!

Today we read “Room on the Broom”  and used stick puppets to act the story out/re-tell the story.  We also cut out pictures and put them in order as they appeared in the story.  The children also picked out word cards from a bag and discussed the meaning of the words. They also played with a letter matching box and finally did a great

I Get The Point!

Today we learned about Georges Seurat, the French painter. We learned that he started a new type of painting we call Pointillism. We learned that instead of blending the paint on the paper, our eyes will blend the colored dots and make the colors bolder.


Our doodle stick man danced in Science Enrichment Class!

We drew a stick man on different surfaces with a dry erase marker.  When we added a little bit of water, it peeled off the surface and floated on the water!  We learned dry erase markers have less adhesives (stuff that makes the ink stick to surfaces) so they lift off easily.  The ink is also insoluble (doesn’t dissolive in water) so it doesn’t

Halloween BINGO was great!

We had so much fun playing with Fall puzzles together.  We read ” Pete The Cat Trick or Treat”  and really enjoyed playing Halloween BINGO and discussing how the characters in the book were the same/similar to the Halloween BINGO board!


So much fun in Kids Cooking making Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats and learning about Halloween safety.

Today in Kids Cooking we made Pumpkin shaped Rice Krispie Treats.  We used butter, marshmallows and food coloring. Each child formed their own pumpkin shape and then used a tootsie roll as a stem.  It was fun! We also read a book about pumpkins, played the “hot pumpkin” game and colored.  It was fun hearing about everyones Halloween costumes and we had a very

We talked about what Folktales are. We also did some matching of upper/lowercase letters and practiced cutting.

This week in Reading Enrichment we talked about Folktales.  The children learned that Folktales are stories that are told over and over again, so the story changes over time. Our Story: The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf We discussed the differences in this version of the story compared to others we had heard. In Small Group we matched upper with the

Shapes, Shapes, Shapes! I can’t resist these shapes!

In Art Enrichment this week we learned that tape doesn’t absorb our paint.  The tape left white lines between our shapes.  We used it to create geometric shapes on our canvas.  We talked about triangles, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, and pentagons.  We then counted the number of sounds in each shape.
