The foundation of reading and spelling success

The first year of school is a big deal for students, full of excitement, change and a new beast called written language. While we have a natural capacity to learn speech, we must be taught explicitly how to read and write. This makes the first year of school a big deal for teachers too, as it’s the opportunity to lay the best possible foundation for students’ reading and spelling success in the future.
