Literacy Connections

Age: K-3rd Grade

Length: Two-hour sessions, 2 days a week

 

Our Literacy Connections classes are designed for home schooled children, or, a perfect compliment to a half-day Kindergarten program. There are no more than 4 children in a class. Your child will gain early literacy skills, enrich and enhance development, and foster a love of reading and writing. We use research & evidence-based resources to build a curriculum based on your child's interests & needs.

 

A typical session includes:

  • An interactive read aloud in which the teacher models an early reading or writing skill or strategy related to comprehension, fluency, or vocabulary

  • A guided reading session in which the teacher guides children through their “just right” books, practicing strategies for figuring out words and comprehending

  • Opportunities for independent reading and writing in which the teacher conferences with each child on their specific goals

  • Multisensory play with language and words so that children develop phonological awareness skills and begin to understand spelling patterns and early writing.

  •
