Sing, Spell, Read, and Write Pre-K
This multisensory reading readiness program precedes the well-known Sing, Spell, Read, and Write program.
Sing, Spell, Read, and Write, Kindergarten and Level 1 programs contain some readiness activity, but the Pre-Kindergarten kit focuses much more on age-appropriate readiness activities for young children.
The Pre-Kindergarten kit includes a teacher's manual, 5 cassette tapes and one CD (use one or the other), alphabet/key word cards, a package of worksheets, an alphabet placemat (with a chart for marking progress on reverse), alphabet puzzle cards, laminated clock and picture of shoes for learning time telling and shoe tieing, popsicle sticks, stickers, and a small alphabet/number strip.
Cassettes and the CD feature children's songs relating to the various concepts being learned: the alphabet, shapes, numbers, etc. (Words and some of the music are printed in the teacher's manual.)
This kit works on basic readiness activities: letter/sound recognition, counting from 1 to 10, colors, shapes, classifying skills, sequencing skills, direction concepts, attributes of objects, and seasons.
The teacher's manual provides daily lesson plan suggestions, suggestions for related children's literature to read, and a number of hands-on activities from which to choose. Some activities depend upon a classroom setting, but most are easily adaptable for home schoolers. The program requires one-on-one presentation. Worksheet activities (used as worksheets to be done at home with parents for traditional classroom groups) involve coloring, drawing, cutting, and pasting.
This kit is appropriate for children about age 4 (even though it is not necessary to use a program at this age). It is not necessary for all students to use the Pre-Kindergarten kit before beginning either of the more advanced kits.
