activity is great we each have an opportunity to tell a story fiction or non-fiction and we play story game. Story game where one person starts off the story and holds the stuffed animal and at my que gives it to the next person to continue the story and so on...
|Daily activity is practicing our sight words and reading our phonics series books which promotes sight vocabulary, expression reading and phonetic sounds. Children read on their own with new words highlighted for extra practice. We've also recently began our Read Naturally Program. This program not only increases fluency but also enhances vocabulary and comprehension.|
