Pre-reading Groups!

The four-year-old classes started something very exciting this week:  pre-reading groups!  The children were divided into four groups, different from their classes, and began some exercises to help get them ready to read!

Mrs. Jamye's group started with flashcards, for letter recognition.

Mrs. Kate's group learned to sound out letters and put them together into words.

Mrs. Emily's and Mrs. Sara's groups played a game, drawing letters from a can and identifying them, as well as coming up with a word beginning the the letter drawn.

We think our 4's will be great future readers!
