3 Ways To Have Great Preschool Enrichment Programs

It starts with greetings

Stylized Hellos

Though English speakers greet practically every day, that doesn’t suggest sharing an everyday hello in your preschool class has to be uninteresting. Provide your salutation of the day a motif, and have your English enrichment class students say hello in that same motif. The motif can be linked to whatever topic you are teaching right now. For example, if you have a cowboy motif, have pupils say howdy instead of hello. If you are doing a topic on body parts, have students shake hands to greet you and each other. You can use endless methods to stylize your hellos to fit your current language unit.

Hello Tune

Songs are a terrific means to begin the day in preschool. Pick your favorite Hello tune (you can find loads on YouTube or write your own) and belt out that song daily. If you want, alter some little parts of the song after your pupils know it well. If you like, utilize actions with your song, like waving and shaking hands to each other, tipping an imaginary hat, or bowing to one another.

Story Time

Puppet Time

Who does not enjoy puppets? They are particularly appealing to younger students, and your class will appreciate it if you start the day with a tool in your hand. Allow the tool to greet your students at your initial circle time if you decide to start the day with a routine classroom buddy or mascot. You can also add to your puppet’s character charm by having it make constant blunders in its language use. Have the instrument say simple mistakes like, “Hello. How are me?” and allow the kids to enjoy addressing their foolish puppet friend.

Read a Book

Novels are prevalent in kindergarten, and if your kids can sit and concentrate first thing in the morning, try reading a story. Choose a book that connects to what you will show that day or a theme you are teaching in class, and after that, leave it out for the rest of the day so students can go back and look at the images during free studying periods.

Art Projects

Art is a wonderful way to get your young students excited and interested in various lessons to reinforce vocabulary.

The art activity incorporated into this class should either be scheduled at the end of the lesson or the start of the following course after a quick vocabulary review. Students can trace images individually, yet you should walk around the area and encourage them to speak to you about their drawings.
