Alphabet Adventures: Phonics Fun

Teaching Artist: Sandra Griffin

Pre-writing and pre-reading skills are introduced to young learners through the excitement of music, movement, story and visual art. Each session, with children’s book author and illustrator Sandra Griffin, focuses on a vowel or one of the common consonants. Hearing, seeing, touching, singing, and moving to the sounds and shapes of each letter actively engages the senses and instills body memory of the alphabet. This creates a lasting impression and a natural pathway to reading and writing.

Audience: Grade PK
