Academic Updates

Pre-K

  • Making Connections Making connections between books and real life experiences help children appreciate the magic of reading! We recently made a connection between the book Bear Shadow by Frank Asch and our adventures in the sun. The silly bear thinks he can outrun his shadow or leave his shadow behind, much to the delight of the preschool students. We tried to outrun our shadows, and found that shade is the only place we could "hide" our shadows.
