infant and toddler classes
This fall we are excited for you to join us in Little City Readers! This class is full of songs, signs, beginning sounds and letters and sensory story time! Little City Readers classes are for babies through 4 year olds with their caregiver and runs for 8 weeks at a time. This is about growing on concepts each week, practicing following directions, communicating with others, learning to share AND and build on early childhood education.
Babies and toddlers 3 months-4 years old will grow as readers and communicators using the 5 building blocks of early literacy and learn to communicate through signs, as well as building fine and gross motor skills through large group activities, practice opposites and executive functioning strengthening through instrument use and songs, sensory art, develop sequencing, ordering events, cause and effect, and 1:1 correspondence AND get our hands moving with a multi sensory process art relating to the story theme we are doing! Think: zoo, circus, space, monsters, flowers, ocean, animals. It's a blast!
This class will run for 8 weeks September 10-November 2nd.
cost: $230/child. additional sibling over 3 months: $125
This class will have activities and stories geared toward older 2's (In the older 2's- early 4 year old class we will work on higher level skills like cutting, more extravagant fine and gross motor skills and practice some independent exploring! If you have a younger sibling for this class, they can still participate!
Moving 1 year olds through 2.5 year olds will practice stringing words together, using hand cues and signs to get our mouth ready for more speech and sing and play and get messy with friends!
New babies through 1 year will meet for some sensory process art, and have a lot of snuggles during circle song time :).
NEW CLASS TIMES! mixed age: 3 months-3 years multi sensory classes on Fridays and Saturdays!
Small Group Classes for 4 year olds-3rd graders
10 weeks beginning mid September 17 cost: $350
Small group classes! Kids learn best with others. These groups are about a lot more than reading and writing. Each group begins with a group game. We practice listening to others, creating a safe space where we all support each other where we are in our reading journey. We then have some independent stations and 1:1 time. We'll practice building fluency with silly accents, speed reading with different emotion cue cards, and writing stories together. Each group is a little different based on student needs, but all groups are a little messy due to multi sensory fun!
4-5 year old group
Students who are ready to practice letters in multi sensory ways, learn a few sight word songs, and develop a love of reading from the start! We will be moving around and getting messy often all in the name of learning to track print and understand phonemic awareness.
