Workshop: Beginning Reading
Our Beginning Reading workshop program is designed for students who are starting primary school in 2021 or are currently completing their first year of school. Students will be introduced to the concepts of letter, word, sentence, picture, one-to-one correspondence and the return sweep. Students will practise identifying letters, words, sentences and pictures, they will discover how to blend sounds to form words and they will practise ‘reading’ short repetitive texts.
Each online workshop is live and taken by a teacher with teaching experience in the early years of primary school. Whilst the emphasis is on having fun whilst learning, the overall goal of the program is to develop and extend each students’ early reading knowledge and skills.
