Jack and Jill Spanish

I just wanted to post to let you all know where I have been developing classes this year for HOLA.  It has been a most wonderful experience teaching and working with the amazing children at Jack and Jill.  We have been laughing, singing, dancing, playing and learning Spanish.  Your child has learned how to say hola, sing "Buenos días,"  make "Chocolate," identify colors, count their amigos, and tell you how much they like animals.  It is amazing what they know.  We will continue to learn, laugh and play together throughout the rest of the school year.  I just want to say, "Gracias," for sharing your precious little ones with us.

Having fun at Hilltop

Currently, I am doing lessons at Hilltop Preschool.  They are once a month and we are having the best time.  My favorite phrase from today's lesson:  Te amo.  I love you. 

So lot of abrazos to my favorite preschoolers.

Summer Camps...¡Qué Magnifico!

Introducing Camp Treehouse!

We are excited to be offering a fabulous camp opportunity for young preschoolers this summer.  Camp Treehouse will give your child the chance to experience the joys of sign language, eco-friendly art, yoga, and Spanish, all in one week!  

Session I: Tuesday, May 31-Friday, June 3, 9am-12pm
Session II: Tuesday, July 5-Friday, July 8, 9am-12pm

Each day your child will participate in various activities to include direct instruction, songs, games, and projects that will enrich their vocabularies, enliven their senses, and give them knowledge that they might not otherwise gain over the summer!  Two instructors will co-teach each day.

HOLA (Hands On Language Academy) is a hands-on Spanish language program for young children.  Children will learn the basics of the Spanish language in a fun atmosphere.  Language is taught through play, dance, games, songs, crafts and reading.  

Smart Moves Yoga for Kids is an interactive, play-based approach to yoga during which participants stretch their minds and their bodies.  Classes include literature, art, music, and movement.  Various postures will be introduced as well as themes of love, respect, and kindness.  

Signing From the Heart:  Recent research has indicated that hearing toddlers and children who sign “exercise” a part of their brain that isn’t accessed during other speaking and listening activities.   Sign language improves a child’s vocabulary and helps him learn to read, connecting the printed letters to the concept in a more meaningful way.  Children of all ages perform better in school when they have been exposed to sign language in their early years.  Plus, it’s fun!  We sing and play games while introducing dozens of signs on a variety of topics relevant to your preschooler.

Raising Green Richmond Kids is committed to helping parents raise eco-smart children by teaching them more positive ways to cook, garden, clean, make crafts, and explore the world around them.  Eco-Art focuses on the exploration and introduction of art and nature with recycled and non-toxic materials. Each Eco-Art class starts with a story that ties into a theme and a summer fun art activity. 

Cost: $125 per child (ages 3 and up) before May 15
$145 after May 15
$10 Sibling Discount

We ask that every child be potty-trained and independent in the bathroom.  
We also ask that a healthy snack be brought from home each day, something quick, simple, nut-free, and relatively mess-free.  We will provide water for the children during snacktime.
