The Big 5 of Kindergarten Literacy*
1. Phonological awareness (strong predictor of
future reading success)
2. Alphabetic principle-ability to associate sounds
with letters and use these sounds to form words.
3. Oral language
4. Early reading behaviors – check the picture,
look at the beginning letters, and get mouth
ready, say a word that starts with the correct
sound and makes sense
5. Writing
Literacy
Students are exposed to a wide variety of materials and early literacy
concepts through shared, interactive, guided, and independent
reading/writing experiences.
Early Literacy concepts and activities include:
• To hear environmental sounds
• To recognize how words sound (same, different,
rhyme)
• To differentiate letters/words/sentences
• To segment words in sentences
• To hear small units of words (syllables, onset rime)
• To finally segment at the phoneme level
(2 phoneme words, 3 phoneme words
• To manipulate and delete phonemes
Literacy
cont’d
• Printing first and last name (Uppercase/Lowercase)
• Identifying and printing uppercase and lowercase letters
• Identifying sounds heard in words-phonemic awareness
• Associating letters with their sounds-phonics
• Creating words and sentences using
Kid writing, shared writing, independent writing
(journals)
• Recognizing and writing sight words (30)
• Reading– Big Books – Shared Reading
– Guided Reading (leveled books take home packs)
– Automaticity – letter naming, sight words, letter
sounds
Handwriting Without Tears
•
Handwriting Without Tears is a developmentally-based method of teaching that
makes handwriting easy to teach.
•
Jan Olsen, an occupational therapist, developed this program for children struggling
with the formation of letters.
•
The purpose of this program is to make handwriting available to all children as an
automatic, natural skill.
•
Children who write well and easily do better in school, enjoy their classes more and
feel proud of themselves.
•
This comprehensive, easy-to-use curriculum appeals to administrators, teachers and
parents.
•
The Handwriting Without Tears curriculum is suited to all children. It uses a fun,
hands-on approach to develop good skills and teach correct letter formation.
