This teacher resource provides students of different abilities opportunities to practise, consolidate and deepen their understanding of concepts and skills in key literacy areas such as:
concepts of print;
responding to text;
listening and speaking; and
grammar and punctuation.
The activities are hands-on, interesting and student centred, allowing each student to work at his or her own level. An extension activity is provided with each activity station catering for more capable students.
The learning centres are designed to be used by small groups independent of the teacher, allowing the teacher to focus on small groups or individuals, and assess learning. We also have Mathematics Learning Centres for early years.
