Bridging the Gap from SK to Grade 1
The transition from play-based SK to academic grade 1 can be difficult for our young students, and ensuring that this transition can be successful can help set them up for the next stages of their lives!
In this 1 week session, students are introduced to early literacy skills and strategies, and number awareness preparing for your child for the first day of school. Math and literacy games will be provided to develop better recognition of letters, letter sounds, primary colours, and numbers.
In this workshop, the children will have an opportunity to experience hands-on activities when learning the alphabet, numbers, colours, and shapes in a safe and energetic learning environment! A wide range of activities from practicing writing letters, reading sight-words, and connecting numbers to tangible objects are planned and designed to give students a head-start on skills they will need to help them see more success in the first grade.
Our friendly, professional instructors work through a variety of engaging activities to not only develop the concrete academic skills (reading, writing, etc.), but also soft skills such as listening quietly, working together, and sharing to help bridge the gap from play-based kindergarten to the more traditional learning/teaching-style in grade 1!
Sizes for these workshops will be very limited, so be sure to contact us soon to reserve a space. Light snacks will be provided for the children to help keep them focused and fed!
