How do I teach Little Learners Love Literacy Stages 1 - 4?
Milo's Teacher Resource provides simple lesson plans and ideas to ensure your teaching is effective and targeted.
Little Learners Love Literacy has been created from evidence-based research; this resource explains how to teach explicitly so that ALL children learn to read, write and spell.
Milo's Teacher Resource book has an Ally puppet and 2 CDs - Milo's Music and a CD with copymasters for handwriting and art/craft activities.
Blending sounds together to read begins once the first vowel sound /a/ is introduced. Children practise this skill of blending sounds right from the beginning.
Ally the alligator puppet is an easy way for children to learn the skills of blending and segmenting. Ally only speaks in sounds, she cannot speak in words. Children respond to Ally and their phonemic awareness skills take off quickly. Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate sounds in words. A vital skill for literacy learning.
Spelling starts from the beginning with the Super Spelling strategy as explained in Milo's Teacher Resource book. Children are actively involved in making words - reading and spelling.
Milo's Teacher Resource shows how to teach phonemic awareness and phonics together to achieve the best outcomes.
Every child can learn to read, write and spell using Little Learners Love Literacy.
