In the ELC we love learning about the Letterland characters, the sounds they make and what adventures they go on.
Each week we have been looking at and investigating a letter from Letterland. This week marks the halfway point with Munching Mike.
We share a story about the Letterland character and their special song. We explore the Letterland box which is filled with objects that start with the same sound as our Letterland character. We also complete a special activity around the Letterland character which we paste into our Letterland workbooks. These will come home at the end of the year to share with our families.
We enjoy cooking within the Letterland program, completing puzzles, playing Letterland Bingo and exploring the relationships between letters and their sounds.
Letterland works by capturing children’s interest and attention. Children relate to characters like Bouncy Ben, Harry Hat Man, Sammy Snake and Talking Tess. So, learning about them feels like play. Yet they are laying solid foundations for successful reading. All the information that your child needs is embedded in the Letterland characters.
Being a phonics-based program for establishing letter sound relationships Letterland is an important part of our program supporting our children in learning to read. While having fun doing it.
