Where Enlightening Strikes First!
Laying the Foundation for Future Success!
Welcome Spring!! Thankfully spring is finally here and your children too are sprouting new knowledge after months of hard work and developmental play. It is always an exciting time of the year to look back and see how much progress each and every one of our children have made since beginning their journeys with us.
This month I want to talk once again about Palmetto Basic #5: Read and Discuss Stories. Here are some great ideas for implementing this VERY important basic at home:
· Try to set aside 15 minutes each day to read with your child
· Allow your child to actively participate in reading: Let them hold the book, turn the pages, read or identify letters or words they know, or name items they see in the pictures
· Ask 2-3 questions for each book about what you are reading, some ideas can include: “Why do you think this happened?”, “What do you think will happen next?”, and “How do you think he/she is feeling?”.
Each year, every public school in the State of South Carolina publishes a “Report to the Community” that updates our stakeholders on the progress we have made on our goals found in our strategic plan. You can find this report in the link to the right titled “CDC Report to the Community”. If you have any questions about any of the information contained in this report, feel free to contact me.
