Our preschool incorrporates different writing and phonics programs.  "Handwriting Without Tears",is used  to teach the children  the proper way to hold a writing utensil and to form the letters. The  program uses music, movement and multi sensory manipulative to teach the  skills necessary for school age. The program allows us to teach many of   Ohio's Early Learning and Development Standards in the areas of  mathematics and reading, and listening and speaking. We have also started to use some of the ideas from Fundations, which labels the paper lines in order to help the child learn where to stop and start the letters.

We also incorporate  the program, "Phonics in Motion" created by, Terri Kindervater, to teach the letter sounds with motions.

The following is the order in which we teach the students the letters.

Vertical and Horizontal Lines

L, F, E, H, T, I, U

Magic "c" letters

C, O, Q, G, S, J

Big and Little Curves

D, P, B
