IN LITERACY ENRICHMENT THE CHILDREN WERE INTRODUCED TO THIS POEM WHICH FOCUSED ON THE ‘AN’ WORD FAMILY (AN, CAN, PAN, FAN…). WE DISCUSSED THE WORDS THAT RHYMED IN THE POEM AND THEN PLAYED A GAME AS A GROUP SOLVING RIDDLES USING THE ‘AN’ WORD FAMILY PICTURE CARDS. IN SMALL GROUP THE CHILDREN CREATED ‘AN’ WORD FAMILY BOOKLETS WRITING THE ‘AN’ WORD THAT COMPLETES THE RIDDLE. WE ALSO READ THE BOOK “THE GROUCHY LADYBUG” BY ERIC CARLE. WE ENJOYED LEARNING TOGETHER!
Community Nursery School in Metuchen is a great place for preschool aged children. My grandson attends and always comes home singing new songs. He is starting to grasp concepts that he was unable to in the beginning of the year. Along with the table activities, playground time, snack and circle time, they children will also enjoy a pony ride, a visit from the Lizard Guy and a vaudeville act and many more. You should really come and meet the teachers and the director.
