Letterland for First Grade Primary School students

The Hellenic American Union’s Letterland for First grade primary school students is a unique program specially designed for 6-year-old children who start their learning journey at school and either have attended kindergarten English courses or not. First graders go through significant transitions as they leave behind kindergarten, and begin to develop more academic skills such as reading and writing. Letterland is a once a week program introducing children into pre-reading and pre-writing activities and gradually helping them develop early literacy skills along with motor development skills in the most hands-on and fun way ever!
