Literacy Posters

Literacy posters and charts are important resources for teachers. Some posters are standard practice for display in all Early Childhood classes, such as alphabet banners and handwriting directions, while others are brought out when specific word families or literacy concepts are taught. They can guide introductory lessons and clarify concepts. They can be referred to by both students and teachers during lessons. If wall space is limited, posters of recently introduced concepts can be displayed, while other posters are filed for students to access when they need them (in a display folder perhaps). My posters can be printed in A4 or A3 (using an enlarging option on a photocopier), and when laminated, are like big cards.

Word Families - Lists and Certificates

These will be useful for students who are having difficulty 'seeing' the strings of letters that make up common word families. Rather than sounding out unknown words, letter by letter, students benefit from seeing groups of letters as word families with particular sounds. There are 5 sets of lists (ranging from very basic to more complex) that can be printed onto cards for students to practise at home, and when students demonstrate automaticity with each one, reward certificates can be awarded. Print onto coloured card (designed to save coloured ink when printing).
