2019 Altius Spring Holiday Workshops

Holiday Courses Outlines

1. Intensive Phonics program available before 11:00

30 minutes 1-on-1 $300 or pairs $200 each

When a child is taught phonics, the child will be able to recognize sounds in words and will be able to spell them correctly. Children have problems in reading because they are not able to recognise the sounds of the letters of the alphabet in the words they read. This intensive program is decided to teach children how to decode a word and to increase a child’s fluency in reading. Fluency is not limited to reading fast. It also means reading text accurately. When a child is taught phonics properly, the child will find reading easy. Learning through an intensive week, it will assist little kids to retain and process smoothly.
