Developing Literacy F-2


Reading & Enrichment

These resources are designed especially for Developing Literacy F-2 (Year 1 and Year 2). These are the early years, where children are being taught to read, and can deal with simple texts.

The texts here vary from learning the ABC, through simple phonics based texts, and on to more complex whole stories. There are a more than 250+ texts in this section.

Each letter of the alphabet has its own lesson. Children are taught to recognise and write the letter.
