A valuable resource for professionals working with pre-school children, or with older children lacking basic literacy skills, this book provides practical photocopiable activities to develop the early skills required for success with literacy. Includes: rhyming activities; alphabet activities; phonological awareness; writing and handwriting; and reading. Each section is structured so that children can build up their knowledge and skills. Developed within the classroom, these ideas and activities can be used with a range of children in whole class, group and individual situations both at home and in pre-school settings. Designed to help children showing early signs of dyslexia or a specific learning difficulty, these activities will also benefit older children who lack a foundation of early literacy skills. It is invaluable for teachers, learning support assistants, nursery workers, parents and carers.
