December Literacy Newsletter

Check out the December edition of the APCS Literacy Links Newsletter! This month we are focusing on oral language and vocabulary development. December is a great time of year because there are so many winter holidays. With the holidays and family traditions, comes food and gathering around the table. What better way to involve your child in conversations than cooking together and discussing your favorite family recipes?

November Literacy Newsletter

Check out our latest edition of the APCS Literacy Links Newsletter! This month we are focusing on extending last month's strategy of helping your child segment, or separate, sounds in words. Once students have segmented the sounds, they can write the letter or letter combinations used to represent those sounds. Mapping sounds and letters this way helps children build word recognition and decoding skills that improve fluency in both reading and writing. Are you looking for more resources for helping your child with reading at home?
