The primary goal of our literacy program is to instill a life-long love of reading and writing. To accomplish this, early literacy skills are introduced through a combination of explicit phonics instruction, activities to develop phonological awareness, creative writing, and exposure to rich, high quality children’s literature. Each day blocks of time are dedicated to writing, self-selected reading, guided reading, and letter/word work. Multi-sensory activities are used to teach letter formulation such as writing in shaving cream and tracing sandpaper letters, Parents are a vital part of our literacy curriculum by reading daily to their children, reviewing sight word assignments, and supervising daily homework which begins in kindergarten.
