EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Early literacy is essential in the lives of young children. Experts are now aware that the development of language and literacy skills begins at birth. Children develop much of their capacity for learning in the first three years of life, when their brains grow to 90% of their eventual adult weight. Competence in early language literacy provides a strong foundation for successful reading.
Early Literacy classes are a crucial part of The Morgan School Advantage. Our Early Literacy classes are held in our Language Arts room which gives us the ability to work with the children in large or small groups. Language classes are taught according to the academic ability of the students and enable us to do cross age grouping. The Early Literacy classes at The Morgan School include but are not limited to Phonological and Phonemic Awareness, Letter Identification, Oral Language, Guided Reading and Writing Workshop. All classes are taught by a Missouri State Certified Teacher.
