Learning To Write
Even our youngest students can learn to create, print, and illustrate their very own stories. Much hard work goes into laying the groundwork to becoming a writer, and the process goes hand in hand with learning to read.
Our students begin by learning the phonetic sounds of the alphabet and memorizing simple sight words. At the same time, they practice the formation of letters, then words, always with the correct finger grasp on the pencil. Once a strong foundation in phonics and basic printing skills are achieved, our students begin expressing themselves in writing. This is a very exciting process for each student, and they develop these skills on their own timeline, with the encouragement and guidance of their teachers.
