Literacy and Learning in Year 1 & 2 (WA)

PLD have developed tools that are easy to setup and maintain which provide useful, meaningful insight into student performance in your classrooms. Following the success of rolling out these tools in many classrooms across WA, this info session looks at the importance of meaningful data and how PLD’s resources can provide this in your school. We will also be providing a sneak peek into an upcoming project in this area which we are confident will be of interest.

Researchers consistently express the returns are greatest when children are first learning to read.

This seminar explores:

  • How to implement explicit synthetic phonics.
  • How focused instruction can be delivered to a class with a range in student ability.
  • Repeated reading of texts to increase fluency.
  • Phonic dictation as a medium to transfer phonic concepts into written work.
  • Time efficient decoding and spelling assessments designed to identify the range in ability so teachers can be more focused in their instruction.
  • Assessments and instruction techniques for students not reading and spelling.
  • Techniques to apply for poor or reluctant writers.
  • Oral language instruction which facilitates the ability to speak in complex, grammatically correct sentences.
  • Narrative retelling and generation to increase comprehension and written expression ability.
