We love a good book…

We use a curriculum that is literacy based at the Dubow Preschool.   While we are allowed to individually add crafts ideas, songs, rhymes and many other tools to our lesson plans, the basis for the curriculum is based on themes and books.  We have at least one book a week, which corresponds to the theme, that we read throughout the day during that week.  At this age, one of the best ways that children learn is through repetitive rhyme and storytelling.  For this reason we try to read books over and over throughout the week.  I’m an avid reader though, and I know along with our kofim counterpart class, we often have anywhere from 2-10 books that we will continually resource throughout the week.  We read during circle time, during snack… We also encourage ‘independent’ reading during the day and every day in the lunchroom after snack while we are waiting to head up to carpool.  Hopefully you see this love of reading extending into your own home.  While learning to read is too advanced for many of them, storytelling, proper book care, and picture reading are all great ways that you can encourage literacy at home!
