We offer virtual enrichment classes along with our regular virtual preschool. This is a consolidated program offered 5 days a week (M-F)for 30 mins. Children will focus on Phonics – 2 days, Math- 2 days, and Writing – 1 day. Students will learn with a partner. After registration, a free evaluation session will be conducted to pair each child with a friend. This “ buddy system” will help children learn faster and motivate each other. Session timings will be determined based on availability. Enrichment sessions are available from Sep 2021 to May 2022.
Phonics is simply the relationship between the letters of the alphabet and the sound they make. In this systematic instruction, children are introduced to recognize the alphabets (upper and lower case) and their sounds. Then letters are combined to form words and words are joined together to make sentences. This program is for beginning readers to strengthen and develop strong reading skills. As they progress, advanced reading concepts and reading comprehension skills are introduced to them.
Writing is a form of expression in children. A two year old can create drawings or use symbolic markings to represent their thoughts or ideas. It is very important to foster this habit in their early childhood. The purpose of this class is to teach children that print has meaning and writing has purpose. Children are systematically guided from scribbling to letter strings where they learn to make alphabets. Advanced writing is also offered to teach transitional writing where children learn to leave spaces between words with an emphasis on handwriting.
Our Math enrichment program is designed to help students remember numbers and geometric shapes according to their age. Students learn to count forward and backward and recognize place value. We help them to understand the concept of quantity—that numbers represent how many or how much of something—by relating it to items they see or touch. They practice arithmetic using addition and subtraction story problems about familiar things. They are also introduced to ten frames, patterns, pictorial graphs, money, and time concepts.
