At Golden Square Kindergarten we immerse children in literacy throughout the program.
Children begin the year “signing in” (writing their name- many will begin with invented writing and by the end of the year they can write their names) to demonstrate that literacy has a purpose. Writing materials (pens, paper, writing pads, and diaries) are found in our role play spaces. Maps, newspapers, magazines, books for fact and fiction are present at many experiences. Children enjoy group and individual story telling activities.
We also visit Letterland to meet each of the letter characters over twenty-seven weeks. (One letter a week plus one week for The Vowel characters). Each letter character helps children learn about the letter name and sound it makes. Then we associate the letter of the week with words that begin with that sound/letter.)
