Teaching children the first steps of reading and spelling.  It's simple and fun!

We all know that reading opens the door to all learning. 

Maureen Pollard, the creator of Little Learners Love Literacy, is passionate that all children can achieve success in reading, spelling and writing. It is for this reason she has developed an explicit, multi-sensory literacy program that works for all children.

Children love the engaging approach and teachers are very excited about the outcomes their students are achieving.   Little Learners Love Literacy focuses on 'phonemic awareness and alphabet knowledge' giving children the skills they need to read, spell and write with confidence. This sequential program has 7 stages and it is developed from evidence-based literacy research.

Children start 'reading' real stories once they know the first 8 'sounds' introduced in our core resource, the Milo's Birthday Surprise storybook. Parents and teachers are supported with additional resources such as the Milo Activity Book and Milo's Read and Grab games. Children practise their skills by reading text, decodable stories about Pip and Tim. 

Stories children love to read with words they can read.

The Little Learners Love Literacy program does not use 'guessing' as a strategy. Little Learners Love Literacy teaches children to 'decode' or 'sound-out' words to read. The books are sequentia.

Reading and spelling can be taught explicitly in a fun and engaging way. 

Little Learners Love Literacy ensures that ALL children learn to read, spell and write with confidence.

Reading is the core responsibility of schools but parents also need to give additional support.  

Getting children off to a good start in literacy is important!

This special offer of $990 is a must have for every Foundation Year classroom.  Give children books they can read with success and confidence.  Connect the learning in the classroom to the books children read - it makes sense!

Chitter Chatter Chant & Speed Sounds videos - both activities are a vital part of Little Learners Love Literacy. Chitter Chatter Chant scaffolds the children's learning of sounds by saying the character name followed by the sound twice, for example, Milo monkey /m/ /m/, however, it is important that this is immediately followed by Speed Sounds which aims at building sound fluency, and saying the sound once /m/. Milo's Alphabet Game cards are a part of Chitter Chatter Chant and Speed Sounds.

The correct pronuncation is important. Fiona shows you how to say the 'pure' sound without any distortion. This is important when blending sounds together to make words.



 

NEW Milo's Birthday Suprise Activity Book

 

This activity book teaches handwriting, reading and spelling.  A must for the classroom or at home. It can be photocopied to be used over and over again.

It includes decodable words after the first 7 letters and sounds have been introduced. This is followed by phrases, sentences and stories. 

A few Heart words are introduced at each stage.  These are words that children cannot decode at this stage.  Heart words are such words as the, The, My, my, I. 

Milo's Let's Spell activity is a modified version of SoundCheck - Australia's best resource for teaching spelling. 

 


 

SoundCheck - sequencing sounds for spelling success

 Spelling seems to get less attention than reading when educators discuss literacy.  Spelling and reading are complementary skills and both need to be taught with the same passion.  In some ways spelling is harder to teach as the alphabetic principle is very complex.  

Wendy Moore from Perth WA emailed me her thoughts:

I'm a teacher specializing in supporting students with literacy and language difficulties. A colleague brought both SoundCheck books along to a networking meeting many years ago.  I was smitten when I first saw them and bought them immediately. I used them with great success.  SoundCheck is the only photocopied proforma that I use .... I'm very fussy about what I use with students, but I can't talk these  resources up enough.  I'm not normally a gusher but they are really fantastic. I can't thank you enough for creating such an invaluable resource. 

Thank you Wendy for your feedback.
