Little Learners Love Literacy® is a sequenced phonics reading program to give children confidence and success. Letters and sounds are introduced in stages. Each stage has 5 beautifully illustrated books with real stories about Tim and Pip and their adventures.
The Little Learners Apps are enhanced with professionally recorded and produced audio. Each story can be read aloud, and most importantly, the words are highlighted as they are read. In addition, children can tap a word which is then highlighted and spoken. The audio can be turned off from the book home screen.
They are Australia’s favourite learn-to-read books. Created by reading experts and based on best practice teaching, the lively stories and sequenced progression will ensure children learn to read. Little Learners Love Literacy® is perfect for home or in the classroom.
Evidence-based research has shown that the explicit teaching of phonics is the most effective way of teaching
children to read. Learning to read is too important not to use these Little Leaners Love Literacy books. Once
children know 8 sounds, they can blend these together to start reading our first 5 books in Stage One.
Each book has a fun story about Tim and Pip and their adventures. Children become engaged with the characters, their family, friends and pets.
This app is true to the books and focuses on learning-to-read in a modern and enjoyable way with audio support:
• child reads the sounds and Heart Words (high frequency words that cannot be sounded out at this stage)
• or tap each sound to hear it pronounced
• child reads the story using ‘sounding out’ as their first strategy
• tap on a word to hear it being read
Hints and Tips:
Each book provides vocabulary and comprehension questions.
Encourage children to run their fingers under each word as they read
All words, except for Heart Words, in these books can be ‘sounded out’. To do this, children point to each letter or digraph, saying the sounds and then blending the sounds together to read the word.
