The Specials are included as part of the preschool day. Instructors spend 20-30 minutes with each class. Chabad teachers remain with the children during this time. For the 2020/2021 school year, our Specials take place outdoors whenever possible.
Below is a summary of current special activities:
|Monday||YOGA: Corey Esannason brings a sense of fun and relaxation to children by introducing them to basic Yoga poses. It is an opportunity for children to connect with their breath, build strength and flexibility, and develop a better understanding of their bodies.|
|Tuesday||SPORTS: Antolie Vartuso teaches the children basic physical skills using a variety of drills and games. Activities enhance gross motor ability, keep everyone active, and introduce children to group sports. *During the winter: Art instead of Sports|
|Wednesday||ART: Morah Yael leads children in creative and unique art experiences. Through exploring a broad variety of mediums and techniques, children are encouraged to discover new forms of expression. Children engage in drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture and more.|
