Reading and writing, as well as oral language, are the ways in which we are able to communicate with each other. All of these things are done on a continuum of complexity. First, a child says one word, then a phrase, then a sentence. The same is true for reading and writing. Important language skills contribute to reading and writing readiness, such as recognizing syllables, rhyming, name recognition, letter recognition, and differentiating letter sounds.
Le Chaperon Rouge focuses on a new letter each week- the recognition of it, being able to write it, the sound of it, words it commonly starts with, and finding it in our environment. Different language skills are highlighted each week in lessons by the teacher. Teachers work with children daily on an individual basis to improve handwriting.
