  • Students will be able to demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print: a. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page by page. b. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters. c. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. d. Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet. Students will know and apply grade-level phonics: a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sounds or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant. b. Associate the short sounds with common spellings for the five major vowels. Identify which letters represent the five major vowels [Aa, Ee, Ii, Oo, and Uu] and know the short sound of each vowel. Students will know how to write the letters of the alphabet correctly using the Handwriting Without Tears method: a. Build capital letters using the wood pieces. b. Start all capital letters at the top. c. Follow the order of strokes for each letter. d. Start lowercase letters in the proper position.
I have a Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education.  I was formally trained by my old school district in Handwriting Without Tears as well as Zoo Phonics.  I have taught numerous children of all backgrounds in person and online using both Handwriting Without Tears and Zoo Phonics.
