It is designed to help educators at all levels of experience plan and implement a developmentally appropriate, content-rich program for children with diverse backgrounds and skill levels.
Zoo-phonics is utilized in conjunction with the Creative Curriculum for Preschool. This multi-sensory language arts program focuses on alphabet letter recognition and sounds. It is a method developed to help children become strong readers and spellers using a phono (hearing), oral (speaking), kinesthetic (moving), and tactile (touching) approach. Zoo-phonics maximizes understanding, memory, utilization and transference to all areas of the reading, spelling, and writing process in a playful and concrete manner.
