Academic - 10/12/2016
We as Trinityhouse Heritage Hill Pre-Primary have implemented our new phonics program called Time2Read in 2016.
Research supports the fact that 95% of all children can be taught to read well, we cannot settle for anything less. Reading fluently and with comprehension should be an ethical and professional imperative. If scientific research has come up with specific methods, activities or skills that are essential to reading success, these need to be included into all forms of reading instruction, to ensure that no child will be left behind, caught up in the unnecessary frustration that accompanies a child for 12 years (excluding occupational limitations) of his/her school career. Accepting accountability is a challenge every reading teacher should commit to.
We have taken on the challenge to teach our children these new methods of reading to ensure that they are taught to read well.
This system is implemented from Grade 000 and ensures that all necessary skills are taught correctly and thoroughly.
Our children love this new program that focuses on teacher then auditory skills before jumping over into concrete skills. Here is a few photos
showing our Grade 0 children hard at work with this fantastic program.
