Every year at Seaboard Lane, the Big Guy--Santa, that is, comes to visit!! He came this past Saturday and the kiddos were able to write letters to him, take pics, make special reindeer food, decorate cookies, and have yummy treats! Until next year, Santa!
Using felt storyboards and felt pieces encourages the
enjoyment of language – felt stories provide a more intriguing vehicle for
sharing a rhyme or short story. They can help toddlers who show no interest in
books to get some enjoyment out of storytime. Flannel boards aid in the
teaching of visual literacy – learning to look and construct meaning from
objects. Children use personal connections to enable the decoding of visual
representations of their experiences. They will recognize a picture of a cat,
drawn by different illustrators as a “symbol” for a cat, and know that it is not
a cat, but represents one.
