Literacy Live

Give your child the joy of reading with our dramatic play program, Literacy Live. Children (ages 4-7) develop reading comprehension skills while acting out stories using simple costumes, sets and props. The stories are selected from critically reviewed literature featuring specific themes. Children are encouraged to use their imaginations, personal experiences and creativity to recreate the stories and demonstrate comprehension. The themes are also integrated into other fun activities such as science, math, art and music. We offer Saturday programs and summer camps.

Spring 2017 Saturday Programs

All programs are free but registration is required. Children (ages 4-7) must be accompanied by an adult. Programs will be held in the Education Building from 1:00-3:00 pm.

February 25, 2017Literacy Live from Creative Creatures
Although the spring season is almost upon us, many of our animal friends have had to develop different methods to survive the long cold winter.  Join us and become creatures for the day investigating underground, in caves, and through the ocean.  Students will participate in four hands-on educational stations as they utilize their STEM skills to learn how different animals adapt and live through varying seasonal changes.
