Letterland To Visit Pullen Park

Event posted Apr. 18, 2017 - 5:44 pm

Raleigh’s Pullen Park will be transformed into Letterland on Saturday, May 6th from 10 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. to celebrate preschool and elementary school students in Wake County.
Letterland brings letters to life by turning them into colorful characters, each with their own personality and stories that go along with their sounds. Wake County elementary schools and many preschool programs use the phonics program as part of their literacy instruction.
The Wake County Public School System, WAKE Up and Read Collaborative and Sinclair Broadcasting will partner with Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources to bring Letterland characters and activities to Pullen Park for an exciting Letterland Adventure Day.
Children will be welcomed by Firefighter Fred and a real fire engine. They’ll meet Annie Apple, Bouncy Ben and Clever Cat. Children can ride on Clever Cat’s carousel and drive in one of Bouncy Ben’s boats. They can travel with Letterlanders on Talking Tess’s train, have their face painted with Impy Ink and make noise with Noisy Nick. Children can play a game of Munching Mike’s Bean Bag Toss, make Kicking King or Quarrelsome Queen crowns, join the Letterland parade, and enjoy school group performances on the large stage. Pullen Place Café will offer Munching Mike’s Menu for delicious food and options.
“I am thrilled at the way this Letterland Adventure Day links the classroom to the community and literacy to life in ways that are meaningful and fun for everyone,” Lynn Wendon said. “I have loved meeting members of our worldwide Letterland family from previous events.
Wendon developed the system as a classroom teacher to help her reluctant readers. She began to publish her work to share with other teachers to help all students learn phonics.
Letterland International, Ltd now exports its system to more than 100 countries around the world, both for teaching English speaking children and for teaching English as an additional language.
