Letter Sound and Formation Practice

Our Preschool-3 children, both in-school and remote, are systematically introduced to the letter sounds of the English alphabet. Every letter is initially identified by its sound rather than its name.

Scenes from Second Grade

Second grade is a special year in the writing lives of children. They are growing up and able to write with greater facility and sophistication. The children are eager to be given important new challenges and proud of their growth and progress.
