Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Children explore their environment and build the foundations for learning to read and write.
Children can:
Enjoy listening to and discussing storybooks
Understand that print carries a message
Engage in reading and writing attempts
Identify labels and signs in their environment
Participate in rhyming games
Identify some letters and make some letter-sound matches
Use know letters or approximations of letter to represent written language (especially meaningful words like their names and phrases such as "I love you" "
