Literacy

Barnardos have published a very useful guide about recommended reading for 0-5 year olds.

Download your copy of the guide here

The Teachthought website contains a lot of useful information and links to iphone & ipad apps to help struggling readers & writers.

“Help My Kid Learn” is a new website from the National Adult Literacy Agency for parents, guardians and childminders of children aged 0 – 12 years. The purpose of the website is to provide fun activities that parents can do with their children, to develop their literacy and numeracy skills.  www.helpmykidlearn.ie mixes the old with the new, from card games and hopscotch that help practice maths, to children’s e-books that can be read out to your child and “Apps” that you can download to help your child learn.

Information is broken down into five age groups: 0-2 years, 3-4 years, 5-7 years, 8-9 years and 10-12 years. Activities are organised into 5 areas of learning: Talk, Play, Read, Write and Count. So log on and spread the word about www.helpmykidlearn.ie.
