The Land of The Letter People program for four-year-olds provides a warm, friendly environment in which children are encouraged to further develop their emerging literacy and social skills with the assurance that their own knowledge and ideas are respected and valued.
The Land of The Letter People is the second level in the continuum of The Letter People programs and works to help prepare students for Kindergarten. The Land of The Letter People Language Arts curriuculm makes language come alive in the classroom, adding a vital ingredient to the learning activities. Since no two children are exactly alike, The Land of The Letter People starts from where the child is, and offers a wide range of whole-class, small-group, and individual learning experiences to meet the child’s individual needs. The program provides numerous avenues leading toward the goal of literacy.
Utilizing The Land of The Letter People as a framework, Apple Creek teachers weave the characters into every part of the integrated curriculum. The Letter People participate with the children as they learn vital concepts in the math curriculum, which is structured from the McGraw Hill Mathematics Pre-K Program, explore science concepts through hands-on experiments, create with art and music, and strengthen their fine and gross motor skills.
By beginning with the child’s background and natural desire to learn and then adding their own background and expertise, Apple Creek teachers add lively learning experiences in partnership with the incomparable Letter People!
