Language/Reading

Children begin the formal language progression of our curriculum by learning to recognize letters and the sounds that they make. The next step is blending those sounds into three and four letter phonetic words. Children develop the ability to read fluently by practicing reading and writing phonetic words and non-phonetic words at their own pace. Some children will have an opportunity to develop an understanding of basic grammar and writing principles.
