Supporting students entering Year 1 and 2 with low Literacy skills.
When students enter Year 1 and 2 with very low literacy skills it can be very confronting for teachers. While some students can be assigned CVC (or Stage 1 Target 1) reading, spelling and writing tasks, for a proportion of students this will not be appropriate as pre-literacy skills require instruction. In order to progress into and through Stage 1 Target 1, students must have mastered the following:
- The phonemic awareness skill of blending three phonemes, which is a prerequisite skill of decoding
- The phonemic awareness skill of segmentation, which is a prerequisite skill of spelling
- Alphabet sound recall
PLD has created a bundle of resources specifically for this purpose, including:
