My Letters My Words emerged out of the experience and learning of working in a multi-lingual multi-grade classroom in the village of Paetona in Salvador de Mundo, Goa. The intervention aimed to bring reading alive to children who had diverse home languages and were beginning to read and write in English.
Recognizing that students bring a rich vocabulary to the classroom, the book has been constructed using vocabulary from the students to build on initial phonic sounds of the English alphabet while constructing meaningful visuals for further language development.
The book has a focus on the lower case alphabet symbol as that has a stronger presence in text material.
