Although the formal study of reading and writing does not occur until kindergarten, young children are capable of recognizing letters and their functions.
Providing regular opportunities to practice pre-reading skills, is essential in gaining knowledge of the alphabet and its association to how words work.
Using insta-snow and our fingers, we practiced tracing the letter S.
Throughout the week, we have been talking about different words that start with the letter S.
We have additionally been singing songs that reinforce the different sounds that S makes. Lastly, we traced these Ss, then constructed snowballs out of our insta-snow!
