Pre-Kinder Reading Program: Building Blocks of Early Literacy

Unlocking the World of Words through Science-Based Learning

Welcome to our Pre-Kinder Reading Program at The Little Reading House, where we blend the joy of reading with the science of literacy to create a rich, engaging learning experience for our youngest students.

The Science of Reading: A Foundation for Success

Our program is grounded in the science of reading, an evidence-based approach to teaching literacy that focuses on the critical components of early reading skills:

  1. Letter Knowledge

  2. Phonics

  3. Phonemic Awareness

1. Letter Knowledge: The Alphabet and Beyond

Understanding that each letter has a name and a specific sound is a fundamental step in learning to read. Our program:

  • Introduces children to the alphabet in fun and interactive ways.

  • Helps them recognize and differentiate between letters.

  • Teaches the connection between letters and sounds.

2. Phonics: Decoding the Language

Phonics instruction teaches children how to convert written letters (or groups of letters) into sounds, and then blend these sounds to form words. Our program:

  • Uses engaging activities to teach letter-sound correspondences.

  • Helps children apply these skills to read simple words and sentences.

3. Phonemic Awareness: Playing with Sounds

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken words. Our program:

  • Incorporates listening activities that focus on rhymes, syllables, and starting and ending sounds.

  • Develops skills essential for reading, like blending sounds to make words and breaking words into individual sounds.

Why Our Approach Works

  • Research-Backed Methods: Our curriculum is based on extensive research in the field of early literacy education.

  • Holistic Development: We address not just academic skills but also social and emotional growth, fostering a well-rounded development.

  • Customized Learning: Recognizing that each child is unique, we tailor our approach to meet the individual needs of our students.
