Monday: Yoga and More C is for Cobra. D is for Downward Dog. E for Elephant pose! Yoga is about connecting body and mind! We will get our bodies moving while focusing on early academics, including letter and sound recognition, word families, and word identification. Each week, a different pre-academic skill will be tied into yoga activities designed to strengthen core muscles, enhance motor planning skills, and help children recognize the mind body connection. Through yoga experiences, your child will learn academics as well as relaxation, breathing and mindfulness! Namaste!

Tuesday: Cooking is Learning Hands-on cooking is a great way to learn and helps children to develop pride and confidence in their abilities as they enjoy the result of their hard work. Through cooking activities, children will organize ingredients, follow a sequence, and carry out multiple directions. They will mix and predict outcomes (science), and measure, count, and sequence (math). And of course, they will get to taste their yummy treats!

Wednesday: Science Exploratorium From the earliest years, children engage with the world in ways that can promote learning related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Research shows that the earlier we guide and support children's wonder about the world, the more successful they are in all areas of learning. We will examine the fundamentals of chemistry by watching colors mix on a canvas and practice the principles of physics by designing creative inventions with pulleys and levers. By discovering "science all around us," we will apply the concepts, principles, and processes of scientific inquiry.
