Age Guide: 3-8+ years
The Learning Activity Books are a great way for parents and carers to foster a love of learning with their children. Some books are hands-on, with the child required to use their fingers, coloured pencils and scissors to complete the activities. Other books are designed for interaction by speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Throughout eight books in the set, children can learn…
Visual-motor coordination, body concept, position in space, foreground and background, grouping, form constancy, number perception and reading readiness.
The 26 letters of the alphabet. Each Phonics book incorporates 11 sounds across consonants, vowels and essential combination letters.
EARLY WRITING LETTERS
Handwriting with a focus on lower case letters and an introduction to the high-frequency capital letters.
The three elements of mathematics: understanding, fluency and problem solving.
An understanding of rhyme and rhythm; developing awareness and interest in listening and speaking.
HIGH-FREQUENCY SIGHT WORDS
100 of the most frequently encountered words (25 in each book) engaging children as they develop vocabulary, listening, language and communication skills.
Colours, shapes, numbers, days of the week, months of the year, time, money, lines, fractions, groupings, statistics and probability.
A BRIDGE TO READING
Rhyming, sight words, basic vocabulary and words in phrases and sentences to provide a bridge for reading. These books are a culmination of all prior learning books.
Every child (regardless of age) is encouraged to start at Stage 1 (green) and progress through the sets of Stage 2 (blue), Stage 3 (yellow), Stage 4 (red). The Support and Supervision pages provide an easy-to-follow guide at the start of each book.
