Reading/Language Arts
Early literacy is the foundation for long-term achievement in Reading and Language Arts. In Pre-K A, we follow the NYS Common Core Standards and use the Splash Reading Series to achieve the standards goals. Children will be exposed to phonological and phonemic skills. Phonics, concept of print, comprehension, and writing skills will also be taught. We will have a vocabulary word bank that children will be exposed to with our Word of the Week. Fiction and non-fiction books, rhymes, poetry and songs will entice the children to develop a love of reading.
