After School Enrichment Classes for ECNS Four/Fives
Total Body Enrichment, Session I
Combining our extremely successful Emergent Math and Emergent Reading classes with fun physical activity, Total Body Enrichment will encourage your child’s emerging mathematical abilities and literacy skills while also challenging their body. The class consists of 45 minutes working on math readiness, followed by 45 minutes of working on reading preparation, and finally 30 minutes of physical activities in our well-equipped gym. Healthy body, healthy mind!
Through a variety of fun-filled activities, children will develop skills like number recognition, classification, categorization, sequencing, beginning addition and subtraction, letter recognition, story comprehension and sequencing. We will use manipulatives, games and other materials to develop abstract and concrete thinking, as well as dramatic play, games and individualized instruction to strengthen your child’s math and literacy development.
Total Body Enrichment will be taught by certified ECNS teachers Liza Akeret and Meredith Cantatore and assisted in the gym by our qualified coaches. It will be offered on Tuesdays from 12:30-2:30pm. Please send your child with lunch; ECNS staff will sit with the children from 12:00-12:30 and then escort them to class.
After School Enrichment Classes for ECNS Three/Fours
Sequencing, Session I
In preparation for a sound foundation in active learning, we have designed a class for Threes that is half skill work in the classroom and half physical activity. It will be offered on Mondays from 12:30-1:30pm throughout the school year. Your child brings a lunch, which the teachers will eat with them from 12-12:30pm, and then moves on to the Sequencing classwork.
This class is the precursor to the Total Body Enrichment class, which the Fours take. We feel it is important to help organize our children’s minds in preparation for the 4 year-old classroom content. We know your child will find this class fun and stimulating.
