What is Safari Learning®?

Safari Learning®
A VERY INVENTIVE Zoo-phonics®-BASED PRESCHOOL & K-1st GRADE ACADEMY & TUTORING CENTER

Learning is an adventure with us!

The authors of Zoo-phonics® dreamed about a preschool and K-1st grade academy and tutoring center where the Zoo-phonics® Multisensory Language Arts Program (and its connected curriculum for math, art, music, science, psycho-motor, social studies, drama, etc.) would be used to its fullest.

In 2007, this dream became a reality. Today Safari Learning® Preschool & K-1st Grade Academy & Tutoring Center teaches over 100 children a week and is a joy for our Zoo-phonics® author, Charlene Wrighton, who is also the Safari Learning® director. Helping preschoolers and kindergarteners gain the necessary alphabetic and phonemic awareness skills to become completely ready for the next level is amazing!

Safari Learning® also has established an effective tutoring program, the Safari Tutoring Center, for older students by using Zoo-phonics® to improve competency and self-esteem.

Your use of picture mnemonics to teach letter-sound relations is indeed supported by findings of our 1983 study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology

Your use of picture mnemonics to teach letter-sound relations is indeed supported by findings of our 1983 study published in the Journal of Educational Psychology. In this study we found in two experiments that beginning readers learned letter-sound relations more effectively when they were taught associations between objects having shapes that resembled the shapes of the letters and having names that began with the sound to be associated with the letters. You have applied this principal to all of your letters. In addition you have included body movements that relate to the objects. The evidence suggests that this should help children learn these associations more effectively. Help in learning letter-sound associations is particularly important for children who come to school without much knowledge about letter shapes, names and sounds and for children who have a difficult time remembering associations by rote. In addition, building letter instruction around animals and body movements make learning more fun.
