Rethinking Teaching a Letter a Week - Sonora Workshop

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Description: Rethinking Teaching a Letter a Week
Tuesday, October 10th, 2017, 60:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Sonora ICES

Why do we like to teach a letter a week? Likely, it is because it ensures that all letters can get covered in 26 weeks! For many children, however, the letter a week approach might make learning letters difficult. Research indicates there are patterns with respect to order and timing in how young children learn letters and sounds. At this workshop, you will be invited to re-think the letter a week approach and instead focus on teaching letters to each individual child starting with their interest and experience.
