K1 Class Structure
In K1, the 5-day cycle is as follows:
Day 1: Sound Learning
Children begin learning phonics sounds, starting with the most common, simple ones.
Day 2: Spelling
Children are introduced to spelling by identifying the initial sound of a word from two choices.
Day 3: Matching
Children learn vocabulary through picture-word cards. They match the words to the pictures in a guided manner.
Day 4: Comprehension
Children learn basic comprehension skills and sentence structure.
Day 5: Blending
A core phonics skill, children learn to oral blend words (in which they hear the sounds and say the word) and to read the sounds and blend them to read words.
