Why Early Literacy matters

Why Early Literacy Matters

The Early Literacy program at Reading Pandas is based on the Reading Pyramid. 

According to the Science of reading, reading skills can be fragmented into small foundational skills which are mentioned in the reading pyramid

Early literacy development refers to the developmental skills needed to help transition from "learning to read", to "reading to learn". Early literacy programs provides students with the platform to build a host of skills, including reading, writing and vocabulary building. These skills go a long way for students in future academic pursuits.

Phonics

Phonics instruction is the relationship between sounds of letters in the written and spoken language. It helps  distinguish between the different sounds that eventually equip students to read and write. This is the ideal base for future reading and writing success.

Early Reading

 Once students have acquired basic Phonemic awareness skills ,they graduate from reading simple decodables to complex texts.

 Early Writing

The ability to write is directly correlated to a child’s reading ability, it shows that the child is making the connections between letters and sounds. Early writing is the foundation of early literacy, which empowers the child to express ideas.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary building is often misconstrued as usage of big, complicated words. The idea is to teach students the importance of using vocabulary which is relevant to the context and helps in effective and clear communication.

Creative Writing

While creativity and imagination has no boundaries,  the real challenge lies in in articulating these ideas. While some have an inherent a flair for creative writing, it's a skill that can always be acquired through imagery, text genres and various crafts of writing.

What our parents have to say

My journey with Ms. Mamta began almost 11 years ago when my daughter Devashree started her class. Devashree felt an instant fondness for this extremely warm and loving teacher. Mamta instilled a love for reading in her which is deep-rooted till this day.
