'Letterland' is successfully used to teach reading and writing in thousands of schools throughout the UK. The 'Letterland At Home' programme uses a fun approach to help your child develop and practise at home the skills they will need in school.
The Activity Books cover the key skills of Reading, Handwriting and Spelling in three colour-coded Stages. Because all children develop at different rates, the programme has been designed to enable you to choose the level most suited to your child. Detailed parent's notes within each book give helpful advice on how to guide your child through the activities.
• Stage 1 introduces young children to the popular 'Letterland' characters. Annie Apple and her friends provide children with their first experience of letter shapes and letter sounds.
• Stage 2 is ideal for children who are familiar with 'Letterland' and are beginning to recognise, read and write whole words. As your child becomes confident with letter shapes and sounds, more complex letter patterns are introduced.
• Stage 3 builds on these skills and develops your child's confidence in reading, writing and spelling. By the end of this Stage, your child will be ready to read and write short phrases and sentences.
'Above all, learning to read and write with 'Letterland' will be fun!
