Frog Street is a high quality, researched based curriculum organized into ten skill domains that support integration of curriculum and builds connections between and among all disciplines.

Lively Letters

Our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms use Lively LettersTM a research-based and clinically-proven, multi-sensory reading program that turns plain, abstract letters and sounds into livey characters. Created by Nancy Telian, MS, CC-SLP, forty-seven letters and letter combinations are embedded into colorful pictures that show Students what to do with their mouths when making the letter sounds.

The Lively LettersTM program addresses multiple targets, simultaneously training students in the critical skills of:

  • Phonemic awareness
  • Phonics
  • Speech production

The oral kinesthetic (mouth cues) feature of the Lively LettersTM Program helps set it apart from other multi-sensory programs, as students are taught what to do with their mouths in order to produce the sounds. This is done in a fun and engaging way as students are introduced to mean-ingful letter characters that are strategically embedded right into the letters.

The Magical Years also has a supplemental curriculum developed by the owner,
Darcy Kennedy, M, Ed. This supplemental curriculum focuses on strong literacy based activities and incorporates developmentally appropriate activities and goals in each learning domain.
