Providers plan monthly study topics to add variety and a focus to their daily activities with young migrant children. Typically they rely on books, puzzles, & flannel boards to illustrate their study topic. This year we’re hoping to add creative, open-ended art projects to reinforce the concepts they are learning and to stimulate children’s vocabulary.
The popular children’s books, “Planting a Rainbow” and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Lois Ehlert were read and displayed to inspire teachers to create colorful, 3 dimensional art that reflect the theme of gardens.
Central California Migrant/Seasonal Head Start is recruiting volunteers to help children practice speaking and understanding English. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Maria Castro.
