Lively Letters Curriculum: Lively Letters™ is a research-based and clinically-proven, multi-sensory reading program that turns plain, abstract
letters and sounds into lively characters. Created by Nancy Telian, MS, CCC-SLP, forty-seven letters and letter combinations are embedded into colorful
pictures that show students what to do with their mouths when making the letter sounds. The Lively Letters™ program addresses multiple targets,
simultaneously training students in the critical skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, and speech production. The oral kinesthetic (mouth cues)
feature of the Lively Letters™ Program helps set it apart from other multi-sensory programs, as students are taught what to do with their mouths in
order to produce the sounds. This is done in a fun and engaging way as students are introduced to meaningful letter characters that are strategically
embedded right into the letters.
We offer a child centered program that implements play-based learning inspired by a creative curriculum and will
be incorporating the Lively Letters Program. Aprende focuses on creating a learning environment that allows children
to learn by actively exploring the classroom and engaging in hands on experiences. Teachers plan and teach
to individual students' needs and interests. It covers all content areas for Kindergarten Readiness while
integrating the arts as a way of learning.
The Nevada Pre-Kindergarten Standards are implemented throughout the program. Each child is seen as an
individual who takes an active role in his/her own learning by selecting activities from a variety of
learning areas. Teachers set up the learning environment with art integrated activities and provide the
time and opportunities to explore. For additional information on the Nevada Pre-Kindergarten Standards,
