LANGUAGE ARTS CONVENTIONS 00 – Preschool

This is the very first course in Language Arts.

It is PDF ONLY and is found in the Parent Handbook area under Preschool.
Within the VIDEO and PDF ACCESS it is called: ECED 3-4, Pt. 1 and Pt 2.

Note: This course was originally written as a year round course for preschoolers and remains in that format. However, we highly recommend that parents follow the Spirit in the pace they use with the courses. Most preschoolers can finish this course within a school year’s time, if not shorter.

Contents:
– Learning the letters through a number of hands-on activities.
– Learning to print them correctly. Not forming letters correctly can actually lead to “dis-abilities”!

– Spelling of the 25 Most Common Words and other simple words from the readings.
– Listening to Scripture Stories from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Scripture Storybooks – Old Testament Stories, New Testament Stories, Book of Mormon Stories and/or Doctrine and Covenants Stories five days a week.

– Reading and listening to stories and articles three days a week found in The FRIEND, the children’s magazine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
– Reading and listening – 2 days a week to Nursery Rhymes or uplifting moral stories.
