A play-based early literacy program for kids ages 2 - 5 focusing on explicit phonics instruction through play but following reading science. Kids will learn book orientation, phonological awareness including rhyming, syllable segmentation, and sound identification as well as sound-to-letter correspondence. All four aspects of literacy (phonics instruction, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing) are emphasized all in multi-sensory and movement-based activities that are sensationally fun!
Our program incorporates a weekly STEAM exercise that focuses on our theme of the week. Colorful volcano explosions to learn all about chemical reactions and color theory, using oil and water to learn about density as well as playing with water temperatures to make clouds, shape metal into and many more experiments.
In this segment of Homeroom, we focus on storytelling, conversational skills, and socialization skills. We will break the kids into structured playtime opportunities in small groups with a focus on reading cues, facial expressions, and body movements during naturalistic and unstructured play opportunities with peers. Playtime groups may be maskless with parent permission with weather permitting circumstances and social distancing in effect.
