WHAT?

 

Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling to children. The Letterland characters transform letters into child-friendly pictograms that all live in an imaginary place called Letterland.

Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the full range of dry phonics facts so that children are motivated to listen, to think and to learn. These stories explain letter sounds & shapes, allowing children to progress quickly to word building, reading and writing.

 

The Steps to learning are:

1.Letter sounds

Once you have met the friendly Letterland characters, just start to say their names for the correct letter sound.

 

2. Letter shapes

Simple stories about the Letterland characters ensure correct letter formation, avoiding confusion over similar looking letters.

 

3.Action tricks

Actions for the alphabet are linked to each character, forging a strong connection between the action, letter shape and sound.

 

4.Word building

Blending & segmenting all through words is introduced very early on, covering blends, digraphs and trigraphs.

 

5.Advanced spelling

Phonics stories give children a friendly logic for remembering all 44 letter sounds and their major spellings.

 

6.Multi-sensory learning

Letterland activates every learning channel through music, actions, movement, song, art, craft, games and role-play.

 

WHY?

In accordance witht the curriciulum we are working with goals here regarding reading and writing, verbal communication as well as preparing them for the future. These are all important motivators for teaching the children about the subjects that Letterland does.

 

HOW?

We will be using the materials available to us in the preschool as we all as making our own activites and mixing Letterland with other work we do regarding language. We will also be complimenting this program with other work because we want the children to work on their Swedish too. Every month or so we will introduce a new letter to work with and incorporate that letter in our every day work. We will also be working on spelling as well as rhymes.

We encourage you to work with these things at home as well and especially to read for your child. Research has shown that children who are read to and who have a lot of conversations at home develop a bigger vocabulary than those who do no so we would really encourage this.
