Appomattox Co. Pre-K Program Returns With 3-D Technology
Appomattox Co., VA - Not only is Appomattox County's Pre-K program coming back this year, it's better and more interactive than ever.
Children will get to use a brand-new program called "Letters Alive" as they learn how to read.
They will take special flash cards, put them under the camera and 3-D images of the animals come to life on the computer screen. Students can form their own sentences and even learn more about what the animals sound like and eat.
School officials were immediately impressed.
"I loved it. I absolutely loved it. I showed it to my own children and within two minutes they were playing with it and making their own sentences," said Supervisor of Technology Brette Arbogast.
The "Bright Beginnings" Pre-K program was cut several years ago due to the county's budget.
There are still a few spots open in this year's classes. Call the school board office for an application.
