I teach Foundation, is there an Alternative Yearly Plan that introduces graphemes in Term 1?

Sound Waves

Yes! The Alternative Yearly Plan condenses the Exploring Sounds phase into only five weeks, which brings the start of Discovering Graphemes forward to Week 6 of Term 1.

This plan has been created to accommodate students who have participated in formal phonological awareness instruction as part of a pre-school program, and schools that mandate graphemes be introduced in Term 1.

For more information about this plan, read the Alternative Yearly Plan and Implementation Guide.
