Kaharoa School

Term One • 2021

Structured Literacy

We have begun! This is an exciting time for staff and children alike at Kaharoa School, as we develop our knowledge and pedagogy around the best way to teach our children. Emma Nahna, our facilitator modelled the very first lessons last Thursday and Friday in all of our classes. You can imagine how heartening it was to see on Monday morning; a 5 year old wanting to start his writing before school, another junior child using his sound knowledge strategy to correctly write a word in his story and our senior children recognising the different long ā sound in their reading books! An invitation will be sent out next week inviting you all to a whanau hui (Thursday 25 March) where Emma will present the foundations of Structured Literacy and the way literacy will be taught at Kaharoa.
