With such a diverse workload, many teachers/homeschool parents can find the crucial foundational skill of teaching spelling and handwriting somewhat overwhelming. To help simplify how ‘words work’ in the English language, Learning Matters have designed an A3 poster (laminated) with clear definitions of terms many of you will be familiar with:
Syllable types…Irregular words…High frequency words…Sight words…
Handwriting is a crucial skill in early writing development and takes up to 42% of the cognitive process of writing until it is automatic. Strengthening writing fluency through the explicit and multisensory teaching of sounds and the corresponding symbols will alleviate the cognitive complexity of recording words and sentences. Through using an easy to comprehend analogy of where letters sit on lines, you can aid in the development of spatial awareness for your children/students. This A3 poster which is printed on card clearly demonstrates where letters sit in space on a line, and kids love it!
WATCH THIS SPACE for our new handwriting workbook which will be readily available soon.
Last but certainly not least, The Learning Matters Reading Success poster highlights the key skills required in order to have our kiwi kids reading fluently with a high level of comprehension. Perfect for your classroom and staff room walls to inform your teaching practice.
Price excludes GST and postage.
