THE KEYSTONE TO YOUR CHILD'S FUTURE IS LITERACY

As a child’s core learning happens in the formative years 0-8, it is vital to ensure children’s first few years at school are setting them up for success. Reading is not an innate function of the brain and it is vital for students to be taught the right way to read from the very start.

SWITCH YOUR CHILD'S BRAIN ON

Instilling growth mindset practises and beliefs into a child’s learning, leads to better student engagement and ultimately better student outcomes.

READING & WRITING

GROUP

The Kindergarten Reading and Writing group program equips children with the necessary skills needed to be successful readers and writers. With a strong focus on phonics and phonemic awareness, your child will be taught the alphabetic code using a multi- sensory approach and will quickly learn how to read and write.  

Multisensory learning involves the use of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile pathways simultaneously to enhance memory and learning of written language.​

KINDERGARTEN

READING & WRITING GROUP

Children are taught the five key skills for reading and writing:

 

Learning the letter sounds

 

42 main letter sounds. This includes the 26 alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.

Learning letter formation

Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters correctly whilst learning correct pencil grip.

Segmenting 

Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.

Tricky words

Tricky words have irregular spellings and children learn these separately.

Blending

Children are taught how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words.

SIGHT WORDS/

WORD ATTACK SKILLS PROGRAM

With a basic understanding of phonics - the relationship between letters and sounds, most beginning readers are able to decode unfamiliar words that follow the usual spelling rules.

 

Alternatively, sight words are commonly used words in reading that do not follow the usual letter sound patterns and therefore cannot be deciphered by sounding out. You must see them and say them automatically.

SIGHT WORDS/

WORD ATTACK SKILLS

A child’s ability to read fluently and comprehend what is being read can be impacted by having poor knowledge of sight words.

 

The Sight Words/Word Attack Skills group facilitates this process and assists children in reading more confidently, fluently and accurately by being taught the most common sight words through engaging games and activities.

Students will learn how to read:

Irregular words that can not be sounded out, such as: said, because, two, whose

 

Words that are governed by more complex spelling rules, such as: great, friend, does

 

Longer, more complex words that are of high interest to the learner, for example, words such as:

Spiderman, Darth Vader, The Little Mermaid

Early screening of phonemic awareness is essential to determine whether children have the fundamental skills in early reading and spelling acquisition.
