Ready to print Say It, Read It, Make It, Write It word mats to practice our reading, spelling and writing of CVC words.

In the schools, teachers are always collecting and analysing data to better inform our planning and teaching.

Having such information is always helpful when looking at what to focus on in our literacy centres

These printable wall posters with full colour, real life photos offer ideal support for children starting to learn the 32 different digraphs.

As an Early Years teacher, I know how valuable visual supports can be in a classroom. 

We use visual timetables to help establish independence in young children and helps some individuals better prepare and cope with transitions. 

We immerse our students in print rich environments to help our children's developing understanding of letters and other symbols as a means of communication with others.

As a classroom teacher, I also know that some concepts are much harder for our children to grasp than others.

Learning digraphs - when two letters work together to make one sound, is a difficult jump for young children to make when learning to read and write.

To support the children in my class, I've created these digraph posters to help them learn some of the digraphs.
