Different authors and illustrators will be explored in each class, so children may enroll in both.

Our most popular enrichment class! BookWorms is designed to increase children’s love for literature and authors while enriching their language arts skills and other subject areas within the Kindergarten Common Core Standards. This class focuses on identifying and comprehending the important building blocks of literacy and language including word families, rhymes and sight words through popular authors and illustrators. Each week, students are engaged in project-based literacy and art activities related to the chosen story.

The children will have opportunities to explore language arts, science and math through literature as they focus on classic authors and their writing style; (i.e. Eric Carle, Leo Lionni, Jan Brett)

The children will develop and explore their knowledge of environmental words, sight words and rhyming words in their world. Art and illustration will be explored as the children focus on classic illustrators and learn how to illustrate and write their own books and journals. The curriculum emphasizes the child’s role as an active learner and give each student the opportunity to engage in hands on reading and writing activities.

An increased understanding as well as an appreciation for the timeless arts of music, poetry, drama and rhyming in literature will be developed and explored.
