In Literacy Enrichment Class we read “Rumble in the Jungle” and listened for character descriptions (traits). After each of the jungle animals descriptions, we named a trait the children heard and recorded it on a chart. The students also created their own jungle animal picture form the story and named one fact about the animal. The children illustrated and labeled their drawings. We played several games including a beginning sound sort game.
Both of my children attended Community Nursery School. I don’t think we could ask for a better nursery school experience! My children have made so many friends, that they still have now years later. They loved going to school to find out what fun and interesting projects and lessons they were going to be working on, from learning about the solar system, painting, reviewing letters, riding a pony and “wear your pjs to school day”. This is what nursery school and early education is all about…making friends, playing and learning together, in a very nurturing and creative environment.
