Build your child's reading skills at home by following these fun literacy tips!
...
Doing physical activity is great for health but also for learning! Some people do better acting out or performing what they are learning. According to researchers at Arizona State University in Tempe and the University of Wisconsin-Madison students can understand and infer more by physically acting out text—either in real life or virtually—than by reading alone. So get your child up and active!

Is there truly anything more fun than playing with play-doh?! At Mosaic Early Learning we encourage learning through play. Play-doh is a great example as it encourages the use of fine motor skills, and cognitive learning while identifying shapes.

This week, Mosaic Early Learning students had a chance to practice writing their names on dry erase boards. This activity allowed each child to work on their pre-writing skills, literacy, and letter identification. Writing and reading is fundamental and we love incorporating fun activities as we learn!

Last week Mosaic Early Learning kiddos used their creativity when they designed their own ice cream cones!

Each child picked out their favorite ice cream flavor and various toppings to make their dessert complete. This lesson encouraged the use of fine motor skills (and creativity!) as the children carefully placed their toppings on their ice cream and curated the design.

There are countless activities that help young children develop their fine motor skills. At Mosaic Early Learning we like to have fun while learning and growing too!

Recently, our classrooms incorporated art and science by mixing colors and making hats into their lessons to help kiddos develop their skills.

#1 – A love of learning

Cultivating a love of learning in your child is one of the most important things we do a Mosaic Early Learning. When your child loves to learn they’ll be open to continuing to learn more and more as they grow! Those who are the best at learning are those who love to learn.

04/22/2021

#2 – Nurtures a positive attitude towards learning

When your child approaches learning with a positive attitude anything is possible! A positive attitude will help them to relax, focus, and absorb information as they learn.

04/16/2021

#3 – Reading development

Reading is essential to your child’s success in preschool, kindergarten and beyond. Reading stimulates a child’s imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Reading is a key component of Mosaic Early Learning’s curriculum.

Exercise, specifically outdoor exercise, is another key component of Mosaic Early Learning. Giving children the chance to move outside encourages a love of exercise, increases Vitamin D, allows for socialization with other students, and fosters an appreciation of nature.

#5 – Success and learning through play

Play is integral to your child’s success. It helps them learn and develop cognitive skills, physical abilities, social skills, and new vocabulary. It also helps reduce stress.

The benefits of play are endless and we make plenty of time for it at Mosaic Early Learning.
