Dear Families,

October is flying by as the children have been busy with work. The benefits of the commitment you’ve made to this program are really starting to show in your child’s mastery of the materials. Thanks for the ongoing support!

It is the repetition of the activity that the child will gain mastery. Humans learn best through repetition. For example, children need to repeat the Number Rods many times before they are able to place the red and blue rods in the correct order from one to ten. This repetitive work allows for the development of concentration and increases independence.

We had an exciting Tuesday afternoon when Miss Lynne from the Muskoka Dance Academy volunteered her time to teach the children some dance. They had a lot of fun practicing log rolls, crab walks, and other gross motor activities.

Reminder: We have one week remaining before our break (October 29 – November 2).

Regards,
Tina
