Literacy


Literacy is an important aspect of children’s development and at St Luke’s we love to offer and participate in a wide range of literacy based experiences. These experiences include more than just reading books; we also enjoy acting out stories, engaging in felt board stories and expressing our own ideas through dramatic and imaginary play, construction, drawing, painting and playdough.

Over the past two weeks the children have enjoyed reading Aaron Blabey books “Thelma The Unicorn” and the series “Pig The Pug”. After reading these books and discussing our favourite parts, the children have enjoyed choosing a detailed picture of Thelma and Pig and using fine markers drawing and painting the image in front of them. Through this, the children have begun to explore the finer detail in pictures and how pictures express different ideas. The children have also extended on their fine motor skills (small muscles) by practicing how to hold the fine markers and paint brushes correctly to allow us to draw and paint with strength and control. We have worked on spatial awareness in our drawings, as well as using our hand and eye coordination to reproduce what we have observed. The children have been so proud of their work and how well they have concentrated on these drawings and have enjoyed showing their families their pictures on the wall. We have loved exploring these books and are excited to continue reading many more amazing books, as well as have many opportunities to continue to work on our developing literacy, fine motor and creative skills.
