September Enrichment

Technology September kicks off a new school year along with new fun activities offered by our many Curriculum Resources!

CPAA is a computer based assessment program that will be starting next week for all our Pre-Kers that are eligible for Kindergarten for the school year of 2014-2015. It is assessment that tests what skill level your child is at in a variety of curriculum areas like Math and Reading. They will be tested once in the Fall, once in the Winter and one more time in the Spring. The results will be shared with parents and the overall progress will be shown at the end of the year after the last session.

Here are some other fun programs you child (ren) will be experiencing during this school year:

1. YOGA- This is a fun exercise program that helps children improve flexibility and
balance while learning new YOGA moves!
2. GGTGA- Guide to Getting Along is a social development program. It helps kids
gain social skills by learning cooperation, kindness, compassion and
friendship towards their classmates!
3. Spanish- This is a wonderful program that helps children learn about another
culture while learning words in its language!
4. B.A.S.E- This program is an active program that focuses on improving motor skills
through a variety of fun activities!
5. Big Book Math and Science- These programs offer big books that help children learn
Science and Math concepts in a kid friendly way!

These are just a few of the fun programs the Goddard School in Chalfont can offer your family. You will always see what resource your child experienced each day written on their daily activity report. Stay tuned for more fun programs that will be described in future blogs!!
