Learning Benefits

Scholastic Early English is a systematic and sequential English Language Learning program that develops five key early childhood learning areas using Interactive White Board technology.

Scope: 

Nursery Level has 192 lessons + 48 at-home lessons (the 48 at-home lessons can also be done in class). Levels 1 and 2 contain 240 lessons, at 30 minutes each. Therefore, there will be a minimum of 120 hours of instruction per level.

Pacing:

Learning time blocks can be at a minimum of 30 minutes to a maximum of 2.5 hours by linking 1 to 5 lessons together. Our instructional plan is designed to be flexible, based on the specified time available for an English tutorial. Most common pacing plans are  2.5 hours, 1.5 hours and 30 minutes per session.

 

Mastering Core Language Skills

Taught in constructive blocks, Scholastic Early English focuses on the mastery of 5 core language skills: Vocabulary, Phonics, Reading, Speaking, and Writing.

- Teaches words in context with sentences and stories to promote understanding and fluency. - Digital content provides students with consistent exposure to authentic native-speaker pronunciation.

- Systematic phonics instruction provides children with a solid understanding of sound-letter relationships. - Children will master the ability to decode, pronounce and spell words phonetically; an important lifelong skill that will enable them to handle complex vocabulary with greater confidence.

- Digital storybooks provide extensive reading practice such as choral reading and guided reading in the classroom and keep reading lessons fun for children. - Comprehension activities help review and expand understanding of words and stories.

Speaking

- Highly interactive and communicative lessons encourage children to use English authentically and systematically, providing them the practice and confidence they need to become fluent English speakers.

- Writing lessons start with handwriting training to complete your child’s understanding of sound-letter relationship and provide a solid foundation for your child to progress to letter-word formation, spelling, basic grammar and punctuation.

Speaking

Students become comfortable participating in class through song and dance at the beginning of each level.
