Here at Children's Learning Adventure, students in our
child care and preschool programs have been busy exercising their imaginations! Two
of our themes for January are the wonders of transportation and the excitement
of new journeys. Other themes include building respect for others, exploring
machines, and giving back to our community with our Book Drive. From all
of us here at CLA in Scottsdale, AZ, we wish your family a joyous and
adventurous start to the New Year!
In January, our CLA teachers helped kids explore things that go. From buses
and cars to trucks and trains, our students were fascinated by exploring
imaginative new adventures, discussing how wheels work, learning how tracks
are made, and many other aspects of transportation. We learned some relevant
words in Spanish and sign language, including
, which means "car." We also practiced our storytelling skills,
and explored the concepts of sinking and floating. Our students strengthened
their language skills in the areas of following simple directions, forming
complete, simple sentences, and pointing to pictures as they were named.
Character development is important here at CLA. Our students have been
busy playing with their classmates to develop their social skills. They've
been learning the differences between common property and personal property.
As part of our everyday living skills, our students have been working hard at
mastering the art of turn taking
, which requires a great deal of self-control. They've begun to learn
the value of contributing to the greater community by participating in
our Book Drive.
Kids at CLA this January enjoyed many different enrichment activities.
Our students love to sing songs, paint pictures, and play with toy vehicles.
They created a group transportation mural and practiced their dramatic
play skills by imagining various trips, among many other fun activities.
