Over the week of the 21st of August, our Kids Academy centres celebrated book week through the power of dress up, imagination and creativity as our Educators and Teachers developed learning experiences inspired by the books the children read every day.
Kids Academy Glenmore Parks, Assistant Centre Manager Tracey Inglis shared, "We celebrated book week at Kids Academy Preschool, where we focused on stories in our program, which meant that our school activities were based on one of the children's favourite books, Little Red Riding Hood.
Firstly, Miss Julie read the story to the children, and they then were asked to place Little Red Riding Hood pictures in order of the story.
Once we completed our story, the children went into small groups where they had fun completing some cut-and-paste activities. They had to cut out the characters from the story and place them on the scene. The other children cut out the wolves and stuck them according to size order."
All our centres provide a variety of reading practices for the children in our care and ensure that this invaluable skill is developed during a child's Early Childhood Education Journey.
