Transitional Kindergarten Curriculum

Researchers have long known that Phonemic Awareness is highly correlated with individual differences in children’s word reading skills. Training students in phonemic awareness skills and letter-sound knowledge is recommended in both the United States (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, 2000) and the United Kingdom (Rose, 2006).

(See: National Reading Panel Report, 2000, Part 2 and 3. See also Phonological skills and their role in learning to read: a meta-analytic review, Melby-Lervåg M, Lyster SA, Hulme C., 2012.)

CAPIT Reading has a built in Transitional Kindergarten (TK) component that equips young students with Phonemic Awareness skills they need in order to succeed in Kindergarten and beyond. Our unique Visual Mnemonics LOOK and SOUND like the English letters, helping students remember the shape and sound of each letter in the English alphabet.
