Manuela Molina has created a short book (click on the link below) to support and reassure our children, under the age of 7, regarding the COVID-19. This book is an invitation for families to discuss the full range of emotions arising from the current situation. It is important to point out that this resource does not seek to be a source of scientific information, but rather a tool based on fantasy.  Please print this material so children can draw on it. Remember that emotions are processed through repetitive play and stories read multiple times. Share COVIBOOK and help ease kiddo's anxiety all over the world.  This short book is in 18 different languages.

Help with phonics

As you are aware we follow the letters and sounds scheme to teach our children the sounds (phonemes) that single letters and letter combinations make.  Here is a useful video about the articulation of the phonemes to help you and your child.
