This event has been postponed. All events tentatively set at 1 September. Exact dates will be announced as the situation changes.

Thank you for your understanding.

This hands-on workshop will get you started to teach explicit sequential phonics in the Early Years to ensure success for all students.

Little Learners Love Literacy (LLLL) incorporates the teaching of phonological awareness with phonics – spelling and reading are the flip-sides of the same coin and need to be taught together.

Find out why decodable books are an important part of LLLL’s practise and apply approach.

  • What does the explicit teaching of LLLL look like in the classroom?
  • What are the principles?
  • What tools do you need?
  • What is the sequence?

Take away practical ideas that you can implement immediately in the classroom. Learn how to teach LLLL with fidelity as well as find out how to use the LLARS – Little Learners Assessment of Reading Skills.
