Class Three : Wrapping Up Pre-Reading Skills

Welcome to week three of Plato Academy. This week, we are wrapping up pre-reading skills by strengthening your child’s print awareness and letter recognition.


Although I introduce a new topic every week, please remember to move at a comfortable pace. If your child needs more practice, you can always find other activities in the list of additional resources below.

    My 3.5 year old loved finding words he could read!! I think it really amazed him that he already knew so many words! It was a big confidence boost for him and has really given him the motivation he needed. Now he looks forward to little sister’s naptime so he can play reading games with mom!
