Year 1 & 2 Language and Literacy Developmental Milestones
A booklet that provides an overview of language, literacy and motor milestones for children in Year 1 and 2 (Lower Primary – 6 to 7 year olds). Tips for home and causes for concern are also outlined. The booklet can be photocopied back to back and then folded in half to provide a compact reference.
Children in Year 1 and 2 are characterised by curiosity and a desire to share their ideas with others. Literacy becomes a focus with children learning the power of reading to gain information and writing as a way to share ideas with others. Oral language skills, particularly narrative (storytelling) skills are also very important at this stage as children refine their language and transfer oral language to a written form. Initially written work is phonetic, however over time students should integrate their phonics and sight words and writing becomes more accurate. Oral reading should transition from a reliance on ‘sounding-out’ to reading in a fast and automatic manner. Over this period the processes of reading, spelling and writing should develop into a more “effortless” process. While literacy is a major focus within this period, for many students the development of reined motor and language skills may still require attention.
