English Skills

Before Kindergarten students can fully comprehend the uses of full stops and capital letters, they need to have a solid grasp of the alphabet and what letters look like. 

Once they’ve understood the alphabet, they then start developing their vocabulary and reading skills, while simultaneously learning punctuation concepts.

Learning the Alphabet

For your child to become familiar with punctuation, they need to have a foundational understanding of other literacy skills. One skill is knowing the alphabet and how it’s used to form words and language.

Recognising the sounds made with the ‘hard alphabet’ as well as the ‘soft alphabet’ (also known as the phonetic alphabet), will help to develop their reading skills. When they are able to distinguish how each letter sounds on its own, they can begin to connect letters to form basic sounds and words — and eventually sentences!

Discover 3 simple strategies to help your child learn the alphabet here!

Vocabulary

When your child is confident with the alphabet, the next thing you’ll want to build on is their vocabulary!

Why is vocabulary important?

Knowing a variety of words helps your child to communicate effectively with you and the people around them. Additionally, an extensive vocabulary allows your child to create interesting sentences to describe things when talking to people.

Check out different strategies you can use to help your child develop their vocabulary here!

An excellent way to build vocabulary is by learning words from spelling lists, and getting consistent exposure to those words through repetition.

Punctuation Use Through Capital Letters and Full Stops

Capital letters and full stop

Constructing sentences requires a thorough understanding of punctuation types, such as capital letters and full stops. A basic sentence uses these two types!

It’s essential for your child to understand the purpose of capital letters at the start of sentences and for names.

Furthermore, they need to understand how a full stop indicates the end of a sentence.
