Next Steps to Reading (IN-PERSON CLASSES )
View all 10 dates
Only available to students who have completed Head Start to Reading.
Next Steps to Reading is filled with fun learning activities designed to introduce your child to phonetic strategies necessary for reading with a focus on short vowel sounds. The letter sounds are taught with hand signals to give a multi-sensory approach to phonics. The children see the letter, hear the sound it makes, and learn a hand-signal for the letter as well! These reading strategies are combined with even more high frequency words so your child’s reading vocabulary can greatly expand!
Next Steps to Reading is the 2nd reading class to be taken the year before Kindergarten. Students will learn how to figure out words by using sounds, context and pictures. Students will receive word cards and early reader books each week.
