Foundation Parent Education Sheets and Downloads – Semester 1

Year Level: Foundation

This booklet outlines key information to be provided to parents, caregivers and the wider community within semester one. Children benefit when home and school work together. To support this, PLD offers an extensive range of parent milestone information sheets and videos. These resources are ideal to be disseminated to parents and the wider community through newsletters, websites and general communication.

– The BLUE sheets have been written by speech pathologists.
– The RED sheets have been written by occupational therapists.
– The GREEN sheets have been written by educators.

 

What to do if Concerned about a Student’s Development?

If students are operating below their year level peers, it is recommended that home and school work together to access support services, in order to cater for the learning needs of the child. Research clearly states that the earlier intervention commences the better the outcomes for the child. If students have difficulties within the oral language or literacy realm, consult a Speech Pathologist. If students have difficulties relating to movement and motor skills, consult an Occupational Therapist. PLD no longer operates a clinic and are unable to provide advice or recommendations for individual students.

  • Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way – Foundation Font
    From $51.00$51.00 incl. GST
    Foundation Parent Education Sheets and Downloads - Semester 1

    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 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). The order of presentation is: Group 1: s, a, t, p, i, n Group 2: c, h, e, r, m, d Group 3: g, o, u, l, f, b Group 4: j, z, x, y, k, q, w, v Group 5: sh, ch, th/th, oo/oo, ee, ck Group 6: ay, or, ar, er.ai, oy, (i)ng, oi, all 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 product is mentioned in the Early Years Teaching Sequence Manual on page 6 and the Foundation Teaching Sequence Manual on page 7. This resource is also available in a cursive font.
