Creating Memorable Moments at St. James Academy’s Pre-K Program

PreK at Saint James Academy Otters are the logical place to start when learning the letter “o.” Megan Anecharico, one of two teachers for St. James Academy’s (SJA) new PreK program for four-year-olds, learned that her young students weren’t that familiar with the otter, though. But they were excited to learn more about the water-loving creatures.

Shortly after the morning lesson on the letter, she scoured SJA’s library for books. “I found a fictional book about a little otter and his family who held hands every night so they wouldn’t drift away from each other in the sea,” she explains. “We loved the story, and one of the students asked if real otters do that.”
