Congratulations to Key 5th graders Alexa Cruz, Isabella Moran and Alana Stewart on being named Maryland state finalists for the 2017 Letters About Literature contest!
Key’s approach to teaching phonics is a research-based, highly effective program that is specifically geared for very young children. The program engages all of five senses as the children learn actions, stories, songs and clever mnemonics that are associated with each sound.
This fun, child-centered approach teaches the 42 main letter sounds in a very specific sequence which enables children to begin building words as soon as possible. Our systematic program engages students in phonetic learning and builds a solid foundation for success in reading.
