FELICITY'S GOALS – AGE 3
READING & SPELLING
1. ID letter sounds receptively and expressively
(Note: Although most children learn letter names prior to learning letter sounds, with Felicity, we immediately paired letters with letters sounds as soon as we began to expose her to letters. This has helped Felicity with her speech, her ability to recognize words, and her reading readiness. For example, when Felicity says "ot" instead of "hot", I can say, "It's with an 'Hh'. She will then self-correct and say "hot". When seeing sight words, I am helping her to use her knowledge of letter sounds to recognize and read sight words by identifying beginning sounds of written words.)Match uppercase and lowercase letter.
2. ID letters in first name
