SOME of the concepts incorporated into School Skills are:
Letter Recognition:
Ability to visually recognize different letters of the alphabet. Letter recognition helps form a basis for lifelong language development and literacy.
Building Fine Motor Skills:
Using the pointer finger to make the shape of a letter helps develop hand strength. Feeling and imagining the shape of the letter on different parts of your body support letter recognition and identification.
The relationship between a written letter of the alphabet and the spoken sound associated with that letter. Reading development is dependent on the ability to associate letter symbols with sounds.
The collection of words known to an individual person. Children who have a larger vocabulary are better able to understand the world around them and communicate with others.
Beginning Sounds:
Having letter sound knowledge will support children in being able to identify unknown words when they begin to read and write. Learning these beginning sounds will allow children to become more independent readers and writers as they prepare for school.
