An article on phonological awareness that’s useful for us, especially for the Cohort 2 girls too who are currently taking the module on Literacy.

And here’s a video too. A child on Ellen Show (I googled like crazy but still couldn’t get his name) who loves vacuum cleaners. Check out the power of environmental print (and the interest of a child that spurs print awareness), and basically just how adorable he is when he talks about what he likes.
