The Pathway of Pre-Literacy into Early Literacy
Schools will have literacy results maximized over the long-term when they systematically plan how students progress from pre-literacy (or emergent literacy skills) into their early literacy skills. The two primary areas that will facilitate a smooth transition into early reading and spelling are: Phonemic awareness (and specifically blending for early reading and segmentation for early […]

Preparing for readingFrom $65.00$65.00 incl. GST
A phonemic awareness program for 4 and 5 year olds targeting CVC blending.
One of the most significant pre-requisites for reading, spelling and writing is phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is strongly associated with early literacy achievement. In Preparing for reading for 4 and 5 year olds, blending is targeted as blending represents an immediate precursor to decoding ability. This resource contains coloured card sets recommended for explicit 5 minute instruction sessions and provide clear guidelines on how to effectively teach blending. These instructions can form the basis of assistant and parent education. The PLD developmental 5 step phonological awareness process has been designed by Speech Pathologists for use in schools. When used in conjunction with PLD’s pre-literacy screening, this program forms a significant component in a school’s preventative early intervention strategy. Phonemic Awareness Readiness for Reading The phonemic awareness pre-requisite skill involved in reading simple regular CVC [consonant-vowel-consonant] words such as ‘fig’, ‘tin’ and ‘mat’ is the skill of blending. First students must learn to blend at an onset and rime level. E.g. ‘Listen carefully and put these sounds together and guess this word:’ ‘f’ (one second pause) ‘ig’?’ Students then learn to blend at the phonemic or individual sound level: E.g. ‘Listen carefully and put these sounds together and guess this word; ‘m’ (one second pause) ‘a’ (one second pause) ‘t’? Answer: ‘mat’. Features: Instruction manual (24 pages) 5 different blending activities with instructions 125+ colour cards, 3 x game boards This publication is mentioned within the Whole School Literacy Strategy booklet on pages 6 and 10.

Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way – Foundation FontFrom $51.00$51.00 incl. GST
A program for 4-6 year olds, incorporating Stage 1 phonic concepts.
Students require alphabetic and phonic knowledge in order to embark on the process of learning to read, spell and write. However, rather than letter naming ability, sound knowledge is more important for entry into literacy learning. Not only are alphabet sounds more important for early literacy, but alphabetic sound ability is the more difficult for students to acquire. For this reason and designed by Speech Pathologists for teachers and parents, Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way aims to establish strong alphabet and phonic sound ability. Within this program for 4 to 6 year olds, a multi-sensory approach to teaching the alphabetic and phonic sounds has been adopted: Students kinaesthetically feel what their mouth is doing when they produce the alphabet and phonic sounds. Students see what their mouths look like when their mouths produce the alphabet and phonic sounds (via the visual representation of the mouth on each page). Students also visually connect a core picture/word with the alphabet and phonic sounds (e.g. ‘mix’, ‘teeth’ and ‘snake’). From an auditory (and phonemic awareness) perspective students identify the initial sounds in simple target words (e.g. teeth starts with a ‘t’). Students move and rehearse a basic action associated with each target picture (which also engages a kinaesthetic dimension.) This flip book incorporating Stage 1 phonic concepts features: Simple to use format Card sets explicitly teach the alphabet and phonic sounds. Students feel their mouth making the sounds. A body action is outlined for each sound. An effective and engaging way to teach the alphabet and phonic sounds. This publication is mentioned within the ‘Whole School Literacy Strategy’ booklet on pages 5-8. This resource is also available in a cursive font.
