Touch! Look! Listen! Learn!

2 Hours 

Pre-K to Kindergarten grade. $8 per student / $3 per chaperone /school faculty free 

Touch, Look, Listen, and Learn is a unique way to explore the theme of community helpers. Using a book reading, manipulatives, and costumes for dramatic play, students will become more than 12 community helpers. The CMA will present real-life and hands-on activities that will provide students with many opportunities to identify colors, shapes, upper and lower case alphabet letters, sounds of letters, as well as simple word and picture recognition.
