For 4.5 to 5 year oldsYour children are just starting to dip their toes in the world of language. Let’s start them off on the right foot!
The Dippers level is our foundation drop-off class, where we further cement 3 key areas of alphabet competency – letter recognition, phonemic awareness and letter formation. This is a crucial level because understanding the relationship between all 26 letters in the alphabet and their corresponding sounds will provide the scaffold for accuracy and confidence when it comes to blending. Apart from an exciting ‘Magic Box’ segment in class where new surprises await each week, students are exposed to flashcards, action jingles and themed crafts to enhance and reinforce each lesson.
This programme consists of segments:
- names and self-introduction
- interactive storytelling
- alphabet flashcards
- dramatisation: “magic box”
- themed vocabulary
- reinforcement of letter names, sounds and formation
- themed crafts
- mini in-class assessments
