We will present a letter every week and have age-appropriate stations set up to give plenty of opportunities to focus on the sound we are highlighting. You can expect to enjoy sensory stations, art, movement, songs, stories, group and individual time with your child. This class is a wonderful way to prepare your child for reading!
