Let Your Child’s Imagination Run Wild

Reading Workshop

Ages 3 to 5

Let your young one explore exotic locales and search for fantastic beasts using only the power of his/her imagination!

Your 3-year-old child will set off on a Jungle Explorers expedition to discover integrated phonics using songs, rhymes and poems. He/she will participate in hands-on activities to develop phonemic awareness and penmanship through immersive reading strategies. Everyone will role-play and experience the animal kingdom together!

If your child is aged 4 or 5 this year, he/she can go on a monster-spotting adventure instead and work on his/her listening and reading skills. Through craft activities, your child will establish the meaning of the words learnt. He/she will also build a vocabulary of high-frequency words and practice forming sentences using self-check strategies. You will be invited to join the session in the last 15 minutes to find out more about what your child has been learning.
