Read & Create Classes for Preschoolers
Mondays 1 April to 8 July, 9:30am to 10:30am OR 11am to 12noon - NOT 22 April
Each class begins with a read aloud of a top-quality, meaningful picture book. A different reading skill is modelled and explored every week. In Term 1 we explored books centred on the theme of animals. We then moved into an open-ended, process-based creative project inspired by the book. The mini maker took home an artwork after each class. For more information on Term 2 activities see www.ohcreativeday.com.
