The Letters and Sounds program effectively targets the development of oral language, reading, spelling and written expression in the early years in addition to providing an excellent structure for remediation in upper primary and beyond. It aligns with the achievement standards outline in the Australian Curriculum (English) and has been shown to significantly improve whole-school literacy outcomes.
This one day interactive workshop provides teachers with a working knowledge of the six phases of Letters and Sounds from the oral language activities through to reading and writing fluency. All attendees will be provided with a copy of the program plus a resource file.
* Also suitable for teachers (or student teachers) who are thinking of teaching in a remote community school. (Student teachers please contact DSF for reduced fee and payment information).
