Student Preparation

It’s wonderful when parents have an interest to help their child at home with literacy or literacy concepts.  Here you will find some helpful resources to assist your student. 

What is a phonogram?

A phonogram is a letter, or a group of letters, and all the sounds they make (ie, the letter A says three sounds: /a/, /A/, /aw/). Students begin mastering these phonograms as soon as kindergarten.

Below are some video resources related to our phonogram program. Please watch the videos to ensure you pronounce the sounds correctly as it is the same way your child learns it in our classrooms. These videos are extremely helpful for the parent.  Please note: students should not practice these sounds unless the parent has taken the time to watch these videos carefully. It would only confuse the student to hear them differently than how they are hearing them at school.
