The Early Literacy Guide

Make a real difference in the lives of children in their early years. This outstanding series on teaching language and literacy supports exemplary practice built on rigorous theory and evidence. One of the keys to its success is contextualised teaching, which begins with whole texts that capture children’s interest and connects with their everyday lives. Work on letters and phonemes then follows naturally because the context makes these linguistic building blocks meaningful.
