PAIR & Jolly Phonics Workshop for Prep Parents

P.A.I.R. & Jolly Phonics Parent Workshops - Prep 2017
Tuesday, 24 January, 2017 9:00 a.m. & 5:30 p.m.
We have 2 new exciting programs starting in Prep in 2017. It is important that these programs are explained clearly to you as parents as they will be only successful with your support at home. Our children are very capable learners and reading is our number one priority at Algester - our new programs will ensure our children shine and become competent readers! Please join us in an information session that will be highly beneficial to you and your child.
P.A.I.R. (Parent Assisted Immersive Reading) - built on a wealth of local and international research, P.A.I.R. is designed to help parents create an environment where their child can become 'reading ready'. It does this by providing simple, time effective techniques for parents. If parents read aloud to their child regularly in the early years they can lift their child's reading skills significantly - now and for the future.
Jolly Phonics - is a thorough foundation for reading and writing. It uses the synthetic phonics method of teaching the letter sounds in a way that is fun and multi-sensory. Children learn how to use the letter sounds to read and write words. There will be some parent support required at home as it is important to all children as they benefit from plenty of praise and encouragement whilst learning.
