Red Wings celebrate literacy at Playschool

March will be a celebration of early literacy at Weyburn Cooperative Playschool. Teacher Jacqui Spence will explore the works of some favourite authors with the students, tying each book with a theme or lesson: Dr. Seuss (rhyming), Eric Carle (feelings), and Robert Munsch (letter recognition and sounds).

Parents, grandparents, friends of the playschool, and special visitors will be making guest appearances in the classroom this month to read to the playschool children during story time this month.

The first special guests to visit the playschool were four Weyburn Red Wings, Rhett Frey (No. 27), Garrett Szeremley (No. 25), Connor Pyne (No. 19) and Ben Laidlaw (No. 30).

To the children’s delight, the players read them stories, sat down for Lego building and play-doh fun, and a lively game of mini-sticks hockey in the playschool’s gym room.

Founded in 1979, Weyburn Cooperative Playschool provides children with the best first step into education. Registration for the 2019-20 school year is open and spots are available in the three and four year old playschool programs.
