Students will begin with the building blocks of reading and language, learning to recognize and recite several letters of the alphabet.
Words that Rhyme
Through familiar songs and jingles, Pre-K students will learn to identify and match words that rhyme.
Sounds in Words
Using the environment around them, students will identify initial sounds of familiar words, like names and classroom items.
In this standard, students will recognize and identify the most common letter sounds.
Through lots of repetition and engagement with texts, students will focus on sight words -- identifying words that are used most frequently.
With help and support from teachers, students will start to engage with and understand a variety of different texts and stories.
