Clever Cat, a character from Letterland, recently surprised kindergarten students in Mrs. Leah Hayes’ class at South Newton. Clever Cat even brought purr-fectly delicious paw-print cookies to share with her new friends!
Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling to 3-8 year olds. The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly pictograms. All of the characters live in an imaginary place called Letterland.
Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the full range of dry phonics’ facts so that children are motivated to listen, to think, and to learn. The stories explain letter sounds and shapes which allow children to progress quickly to word building, reading, and writing.
