PLD’s 2020 Whole School Literacy Plan

Year Level: Early Years, Foundation, Year 1 & 2, Years 3 to 6

The document outlines how to implement PLD’s literacy, Movement and Motor and Oral Language resources during the Early Years, Foundation, Year 1 & 2 and across Years 3 to 6. Each page provides suggested time frames and implementation recommendations.

The purpose of this document is to provide an implementation outline to assist schools in scheduling the PLD programs within a broad school-based strategy. When PLD resources are embedded within a whole-school strategy a level of consistency is achieved and the results from the programs are maximised.

This document outlines how the PLD literacy, oral language and motor range of resources can be applied within a school. Each page provides suggested timeframes and implementation recommendations, with reference to specific PLD resources. It outlines:

  • What to teach?
  • When to screen?
  • How to cater for the range in ability within a class?

Keep in mind it may be appropriate for schools to adapt the timing of the skills outlined within this document. Schools may also choose to implement some or all of the recommended outlines.┬áIf you have any questions or require further information, please contact PLD on [email protected]

  • Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way – Foundation Font
    From $51.00$51.00 incl. GST
    PLD's  2020 Whole School Literacy Plan

    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.   Generous discounts apply for bulk orders 5 to 9 copies – 15% discount applies 10+ copies – 20% discount applies
