PreK Reading Strategy and Curriculum Standards

A PreK reading strategy includes pre-writing activities including drawing, coloring and painting. Artistic expression is important as a language arts lesson as it encourages PreK children to become comfortable with making creative marks on paper. When given plain paper PreK reading strategy children express themselves starting with lines and scribbles, then progressing to individualized, unique mark-making activities as they learn to design and create on paper. This not only gives them confidence with writing, it helps develop small-muscle structure in their hands. They learn to hold writing instruments, whether they be crayons, pencils, felt pens, or paintbrushes.

Time4Learning’s award-winning preschool program combines technology, animated characters, original stories and fun music to inspire a love of learning in the littlest e-learners.

PreK Reading Strategy and Curriculum Standards: Writing Applications – Reading Strategy, Language Arts Lessons, Language Arts Worksheets, Language Arts Activity

PreK reading strategy students are also often given language arts worksheets. Most PreK children are ready for simple language arts worksheet lessons and many young children enjoy doing the paperwork. They can start learning the difference between uppercase and lowercase letters. A popular language arts activity at this reading level is for children to copy letters and words. Even if they don’t immediately understand all the words, they often think copying them is loads of fun.

An important part of a PreK reading strategy writing program is to see that young children are capable of following directions. Therefore language arts worksheets are used in asking children to do simple things such as “circle the duck” and “put an x on the dog” when given a writing worksheet with pictures of various animals.

Letters of the alphabet are introduced and PreK reading strategy students learn to form the letters correctly. Their reading teacher encourages them to write the letters using language arts worksheets that show which direction they should move their pencils for ease of writing.

PreK reading strategy students learn simple rhymes, songs, and finger-plays, and are given language arts worksheets to decorate with these things written on them. Many PreK reading strategy students pick up an ability to read by learning the rhymes then comparing with the words written on paper.

The Time4Learning Program Structure

Time4Learning has been refined through years of feedback from educators, parents, and students. Subjects are organized into chapters composed of interactive lessons, printable worksheets, quizzes and tests. Students are guided through the activities at their own pace by an automated system.

When students log in, they choose a subject, select a chapter, pick a lesson and complete the activities. A bright green arrow tells them where they left off, and completed work is clearly labeled with a check-mark or a gold star. Visual and auditory prompts guide students through the lessons, making it easy for even young learners to follow, and an online playground (controlled by parents) rewards and motivates them to finish their lessons.

Parents get access to printable lesson plans, teaching tools, detailed reporting and parental support through our online Parent Forum.
