At the end of March, Peake Childhood Center celebrated our very own Literacy Week! Each day of the week was titled after a book and provided a different activity related to early literacy that engaged our children, staff, and families.
Monday, titled “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!”, was all about reading aloud with friends. Students brought their favorite book from home to share with their class. Our favorite support dog, Millie, was on site to hear from the four-year-old classes.
Tuesday, titled “Guess How Much I Love You”, engaged families through our monthly Parent Partnership meeting. Held virtually, this workshop featured published children’s author Sharifa Louis who shared ideas on how to get their young children excited about reading and incorporate extra learning activities.
Wednesday, titled “Goodnight Moon”, was the coziest day of all. Clad in their pajamas, students and staff spent the day reading books about naptime and nighttime.
Thursday, titled “Go, Dog, Go!”, engaged our entire community with a trip to the local bookstore. Our children and families visited Dog Eared Books, receiving door prizes and purchasing books to build their at-home libraries.
Friday highlighted a marvelous, spectacular, incredible slew of stupendous vocabulary words! Staff and students dressed up as a vocabulary word to teach to the class. Mammal, Pollen, and Construction were just a few of the fabulous words represented. The photo above shows some of our staff who dressed as a teacher and her S.T.R.E.A.M. curriculum – science, technology, reading, engineering, art, and mathematics.
