Letters of the Week:

The most current research shows that teaching letters in context is a much more effective method than the outdated Letter of the Week method. Therefore, we have now transitioned away from teaching a letter of the week. Letters will now be taught through our weekly/monthly themes and units. All the activities that we complete are planned around the themes and units. Just like math activities, literacy activities can also be planned with any theme. Additionally, because letters are integrated into our themes and units, there is not a given timeline for how letters will be learned because students learn letters at their own pace. Please review the At-Home Resources to see how you can support your child learning letters.
