An essential toolkit to teach the Stages 1–4 letters and sounds for reading and spelling, alongside the Milo’s Birthday Surprise storybook.
This Teacher Resource Pack comprises Milo's Teacher Resource Book (which includes the Ally Alligator Puppet and USB) plus Milo's Activity Book.
The Teacher Resource Book provides simple lesson plans and activity ideas to ensure your teaching of reading and spelling is effective and targeted from the very beginning. A USB of handwriting copy masters and craft activities is also included.
An Ally the alligator puppet supports the teaching of phonemic awareness skills, which are vital for literacy learning. Ally only speaks in sounds; she cannot speak in words. Children respond to Ally and their blending and segmenting skills take off quickly.
Milo's Activity Book provides activities for handwriting, phonemic awareness, reading and spelling for Stages 1–4. It also features a unique spelling strategy – Let’s spell – which helps children to experience success in spelling. It provides a sequence of letter choices to ensure children can easily hear and identify each sound and letter to spell with accuracy.
Stage 1 sequence: m s f a p t c i
Stage 2 sequence: b h n o d g i v
Stage 3 sequence: y r e qu z
