Star Phonics is a 40 week course designed to teach reading to young children between ages 4 to 7 years. The lessons were developed by qualified language teachers and early childhood educators at Nurture Craft Resource Centre and reviewed by educators at the National Institute of Education, Singapore.
Star Phonics uses well researched methods of teaching and memory retention to help children learn quickly and easily.
Studies have provided conclusive evidence that we learn better when various senses are stimulated. Memory retention is also improved with the incorporation of a tune or song.
In the Star Phonics lessons we have incorporated the multiple Intelligence based approach eg. music and movement, art and craft to help children enjoy learning.
The primary focus of Star Phonics is to teach reading, with a secondary emphasis on writing and creative expressions through language use.
Throughout the course, children will be taught reading, writing, speaking and listening.
