Deliberations contained in the article refer to changes suggested by education reform in respect of lowering educational threshold. With reference to the developmental characteristics of a child entering the first form, an attempt has been made to find arguments supporting that controversial decision. A chance of teaching process intensification is seen in, inter alia, the acceleration phenomenon, too often ignored by parents and teachers. The table shows typical features of a pupil beginning his/her educational process in respect of reading and writing. Polish language teaching, which conveys all educational contents, has a key role. In order to optimize educational process, work stages devoted to the introduction of a letter have been presented taking into account individual subject and intersubject integration. A crucial role has been assigned to play in order to ease the transition from nursery school to school working system.
