Literacy in Prep has enabled the students to be creatively immersed in each sound. Every day there is a ‘Sound of the Day’ in which students learn the phoneme, rhyme and how to write the letter correctly. There is also a focus story that highlights the letter sound and incorporates comprehension questions that assist students in thinking critically and creatively. Each letter has a handwriting page that helps support students in developing a strong pencil grip. Crafts are also an option with some letters, including apple stamping for the ‘a’ sound and an octopus cutting activity for the ‘o’ sound. Students have made prince and princess crowns for the letter ‘p’ and some epic sail boats which ties into the story book for the letter ‘e’.
