Teaching children to read and write is one of the most powerful and important things that an adult can do, but getting there can be tough! In the early stages of phonic development, teaching reading and writing for meaning is particularly tricky because the number of letters and sounds that the children know is limited. It’s also at this very moment that we need to show the children the point of being able to apply this phonic knowledge in order to get them hooked. This resource will really help you to do just that!

The children will be rolling, growing, floating and shining a light on success before you know it!

In the early days with a Year 1 class, finding a new and exciting quality text to underpin a literacy unit of work can be time consuming. The children are generally still on a literacy journey, taking them from dependence to independence, so the map which takes them there needs to be full of excitement, interest and well matched to their growing abilities. Help! is a narrative literacy unit which does just that!

In the past I’ve been challenged to find an engaging text based in a familiar setting which successfully inspires and motivates children at the beginning of Year 1. Decisions, Decisions! is a narrative literacy unit which does just that! Using a contemporary text, Oh No, George! by Chris Haughton, dilemmas and decisions are introduced through bold illustrations, a lovable main character and simple text, which wholeheartedly appeal to children of this age.
