FIRST LETTERS 2.5 YEARS +
Focus: Learning letter sounds - Learning letter shapes
Necessary Prior Knowledge: To be able to sit for 5-minute intervals
Children are introduced to the first level of our letter system in a logical and sequential order. The focus is on the consolidation of all letters and sounds until recognition becomes automated. Learning is made easier with a kinesthetic action for each letter using Auslan (Australian Sign Language). Games are played and concentration is extended over the term. Letter of the Day is introduced with more focus on letter shape and directionality.
