The Nursery and Pre-K children have been investigating our recently renovated Book Nook in the classroom. The children are learning how to care for our classroom library, books, and materials. A puppet theater, flannel board, and other storytelling materials are also featured in this space. We’ve added a writing center as part of this updated space and a listening center will be incorporated in the near future.
The Nursery and Pre-K teachers have been working with Abbey Gebel, the Lower School reading specialist, to enhance the reading program to differentiate instruction and further prepare our children for Kindergarten. This is being explored through Reading Workshop as well as Letter and Word Study.
A Word Wall will be a prominent feature in the classroom, and children will add names, samples of environmental prints, and key words that are being learned through literature and shared reading and writing experiences.
The photos offer a glimpse into the level of interest and involvement the children are experiencing already!
