WELCOME TO GRADE 1!
This year in grade 1/2 we are using a new program called Jolly phonics. Jolly Phonics is a literacy program that is implemented all across the United Kingdom at the Pre-K level. Children in the UK, ages 3 and 4, are reading and writing with great accuracy at the end of the program. After training sessions and workshops I feel that we are prepared to bring this program to our school! Since this program is so different I am inviting parents/guardians into our classroom this Friday, September 15th, after Mug'n'Muffin, from 8:45-10:00 to see how we run the program in our classroom. This experience will allow parents to better understand the program, it's intentions, and how they can better help their kids at home. The kids are already 7 sounds into the program (learning 1 a day) and will soon be bringing home flashcards and minibooks to practice with. We have also started blending these sounds together to make small words. Join us this Friday and stay later to see the Circus Magic show at 10:45!!!
