ENRICHMENT CLASS OFFERINGS FOR THE FIRST TRIMESTER

(September 24 - December 7)

de Puerta a Puerta - Spanish Language and Culture

Mondays | 2:45 - 5:00 pm

Research shows that the many benefits, both cognitive and social, of early exposure to a second language will last throughout a childs lifetime. Our Spanish enrichment program, taught by a native Spanish speaking teacher from Columbia, offers children the opportunity to fall in love with a different culture: its language, music, and food. By discovering new vocabulary words, games, arts & craft activities, music and movement, children will have the opportunity to experience and learn about the wonderful Hispanic culture.

Cooking by the Book

Wednesdays | 2:45 - 5:00 pm

Each week we will read a children's picture book that has some connection to food. The references may be obvious, such as in The Gingerbread Man or not so obvious, like Yoko, the story of a girl who brings sushi for lunch.  We will then make the food written about in the story and explore if we like it or not. No matter what, the process of creating and cooking will be great fun. We will also keep a diary of recipes and reviews of our culinary masterpieces.
