We’re half way towards the end of the school year and we would like to share our daily routine in English Language Arts.
We start our day with a few songs such as:
Children regularly listen to stories and even made up their own stories based on what they see in pictured books. Stories during Read Aloud introduce the different letters for every week and helps children practice their listening skills. Read Aloud also paves way in helping build their vocabulary as they learn new words from the books read to them.
We use different play activities to support letter and sound recognition that is also engaging for children. Activities such as digging for letters or pictures, matching flower pots, and simple puzzles are some of the activities we do in Nursery.
Our Center Time Activities serve as support in the learning of letters and its sound. It is also a way for children to exercise their fine-motor skills and creativity.
We use letters to form different animals or objects that begin with that letter; this is also one way of helping children remember the letters better.
We practice writing using different writing tools. We also use clay to form the letters as a an exercise for their fine-motor. Children also enjoy using ink dabbers to form the letters and help them practice the proper stroke of the letters.
Letter find, alphabet insets, free drawing, and reading time are some of the activities the nursery children enjoy.
These simple activities continue to help the Nursery children grasp different concepts and skills presented to them in a fun and meaningful way.
