Learning Without Tears

St. Mark Community Preschool is adopting Learning Without Tears to help our preschoolers become emergent writers by coloring, drawing and pre-writing! Learning Without Tears addresses alphabet knowledge, letter and number recognition, capital and lowercase formation, counting, drawing, shapes and colors. Its multisensory activities provide children with hands on learning through music, wood pieces for letters, chalkboards, roll a dough letters, flip crayons and tiny pencils.

Zoo Phonics

Zoo Phonics is a program used to teach early literacy at St. Mark Community Preschool. This program is rooted in an animal theme- the configuration of a letter is remembered by a picture of an animal. Zoo Phonics uses these animal characters as tools to help children develop reading, spelling, and writing. Each letter has an animal name, sound, shape, and body movement.
