Brightly Beaming 
Steps to Reading Program

Step Three:
Sound of the Week
Adaptable for Ages 3 - 6
by Katrina Lybbert

Curriculum Information

This curriculum can be used once your child has completed the Letter of the Week curriculum or equivalent.  You child should know all the basic letters and sounds before beginning.  I feel that this curriculum is the next step on the road to reading.  Your child will learn many new sounds that will help develop reading skills.

This curriculum covers most of the Language Arts portion of a Kindergarten curriculum.  You will want to add Math, Social Studies, Science, and other optional subjects of your choice to create a more complete program of study.  I recommend the book, What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know Edited by E. D. Hirsch, Jr., for additional learning ideas.

 *Curriculum Outline*

This program will cover a year of learning.  I have created a schedule that lasts 36 weeks.  You are welcome to adapt the schedule for your own family.  This is just a suggestion.  Have fun with it!
