Tk to 5th Grade

Kindergarten- Learning new language skills is a hallmark of kindergarten.  Your child will learn about the alphabet and its role in reading.  Your child will practice rhyming, matching words with beginning sounds, and blending sounds into words.  Practice with these types of activities is a powerful step toward learning to read and spell correctly.  

First Grade- First grade children become more independent reader and writers.  Your child will continue to learn and practice rules for recognizing the sounds that make up words and will be able to sound out more complex words.  Such foundational skills are necessary and important components of developing proficient readers with the capacity to comprehend a wide range of materials.
