Our students are energetic and eager to learn boys and girls in kindergarten. They come from a culturally diverse community and attend a Title I school. Many of our students never get to explore new places. Many of them come to school with little to no exposure to anything outside of their small community. Their experiences come mainly from books, the internet, or television. We would love to enrich their kindergarten learning with a trip to meet the LetterLand characters.
Each morning, our students hop on board the Letterland Express train. They take an imaginary ride to a fictional Letterland where letters and sounds come to life. We meet characters like Annie Apple, Clever Cat, and Eddy Elephant.
Bringing these characters to life helps our students apply their phonics knowledge to their reading in order to become proficient readers and writers.
Each year, a local mountain amusement park transforms their park into Letterland. All of the characters come to life and are there to greet the students. Then we get to take a ride on a real coal-powered train known as the Letterland Express.
Taking our students on this trip would reinforce all they have learned throughout the year.
