Profiling the precursors of pre-literacy, early reading, and spelling.

The aim of Pre-Literacy and Early Literacy Screens for 4 to 8 year old students is to provide time-efficient screening options that track junior primary skills and inform teaching requirements. Within the multiple pre-literacy and early literacy screening tools, clear administration instructions are explained within the manual. The ‘Pre-Literacy Screens’ investigate children’s development in phonological awareness and alphabetic knowledge; core skills which facilitate early literacy development. The ‘Early Literacy Screens’ investigate early reading and spelling development, along with prerequisite skills.

This essential Early Years resource includes:
  • An Alphabet Readiness Screen.
  • An updated version of The Pre-Literacy Screen with updated features: the rhyme identification sub-test listed is marked as optional, there are new formats for tracking alphabet recognition (i.e. for reading) and alphabet recall and formation (i.e. for spelling and writing), a CVC reading subtests now follows the blending subtest, and a CVC spelling subtest now follows the segmentation subtest.
  • An Early Literacy Screen­ to review students in the junior primary school years in the areas of decoding and spelling.
  • A CVC Single Word Reading and Spelling Screen (with an optional section for the students who are experiencing difficulty acquiring these skills).
  • sh, ch, th, oo, ee, ck Single Word Reading and Spelling Screen (with an optional section for the students who are experiencing difficulty acquiring these skills).
  • A CCVC Single Word Reading and Spelling Screen (with an optional section for the students who are experiencing difficulty acquiring these skills).
  • A CVCC Single Word Reading and Spelling Screen (with an optional section for the students who are experiencing difficulty acquiring these skills).
  • A Junior Primary Spelling and Reading profile.

This publication is mentioned within the ‘Whole School Literacy Strategy’ booklet on page 6.

  • Pre-Literacy and Early Literacy Screens
    Difficulty learning the alphabet

    Children require an awareness of the small or individual sounds at the beginning of words in order to be in a good position to start learning the alphabet sounds.

    Why? When children are able to ‘hear’ and ‘say’ the initial sounds in words only then does the alphabet sound system make sense. This does

    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 […]
