1 LiteracyPlanet & the Australian Curriculum: Pre-School We look at learning differently.

2 LiteracyPlanet & the Australian Curriculum Welcome to LiteracyPlanet & the Australian Curriculum. LiteracyPlanet is the most comprehensive online literacy resource for Australian schools. It features 1,000s of exercises to support the development of key literacy skills from the early learning years to Year 9 and up, including pre-reading, s, sight words, reading, spelling, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar and punctuation. An Australian-developed resource, LiteracyPlanet is founded on the beliefs that literacy skills are an essential foundation for life, and students learn better when they are engaged and having fun. Teachers are instrumental in helping their students develop these valuable skills, and need curriculum-aligned resources that are effective and easy to use. LiteracyPlanet s content is developed by educators and designed to complement and support teaching of the Australian Curriculum, with a primary focus on English. This guide helps teachers understand how LiteracyPlanet is aligned to the Australian Curriculum, and links each exercise to the associated knowledge, skills and learning outcomes. Using this guide, teachers will be able to see how the content is mapped to the general outcomes and strands of the English Curriculum, and what is available for their day-to-day planning. Thank you for making LiteracyPlanet a resource in your school. We are excited to be a part of your students learning journey. Adam McArthur CEO, LiteracyPlanet.

3 Content Summary Pre- Targeting ages 3-5, pre-reading exercises are colourful and highly interactive. They cover the following three areas: includes visually distinguishing differences and similarities, exploring concepts of directionality and identifying s, pairs and missing. Sequencing covers matching symbols, positional language, sequencing events and letter matching. deals exclusively with learning letter names (not sounds). The concept of vowels and upper and lower is also explored, and an opportunity for revision is available at the end of the section. Each of these areas includes interactive tutorials to introduce key concepts and numerous exercises to test students knowledge and application. Phonics The s content in LiteracyPlanet incorporates both an analytic and a synthetic s approach to target the early primary years. The key steps to reading acquisition are followed: 1. Phonemic awareness 2. Blending 3. Basic sight vocabulary 4. Double letter sounds 5. Long vowel rules 6. Soft c and g 7. Complex double letter sounds (diphthongs) 8. Vowel sounds with r 9. Silent letters Sight Words Sight words constitute two-thirds of all vocabulary in early reading and about half of all adult reading material. LiteracyPlanet s sight word section features two categories of words: Common Sight Words and More Sight Words. The 720 words listed under Common Sight Words include the 220 Dolch Words and other commonly occurring words in children s literature. The section titled More Sight Words was compiled by Macquarie University s Department of Cognitive Science based on studies into sight word acquisition. More than 1,400 words are covered by these two categories. All sight word lists are available on the LiteracyPlanet site, or teachers can create their own. Spelling LiteracyPlanet offers a variety of spelling categories and word lists for years Foundation to Year 8. The latter years spelling lists are predominantly made up of phonemic word grouping, word family groupings, prefix and suffix groupings, conventional spelling and etymological groupings. Students are able to click on the sentence speaker in the toolbar to hear the word used in a sentence in word play games. There are 14 word play games to help students identify, familiarise and learn their spelling and sight words in a fun and engaging manner. Teachers can also create their own word lists to suit the varying needs of individual students, their class and school. Each new letter sound correspondence is introduced via a tutorial, followed by interactive exercises to test students understanding and application.

4 Fluency LiteracyPlanet s reading section provides students with a range of levelled extracts based on eight categories: Creatures, Disasters, Discoveries, Mysteries, People, Bizarre, Sport and Miscellaneous. With over 400 extracts, there is something to please even the most reluctant reader. Students can select either fluency mode or reading mode to complete a reading exercise. Fluency mode records the words read per minute as students progress through the activity. Additionally, students can click on any unfamiliar words to hear them. These unfamiliar words are highlighted and voiced when the extract is played back at the recorded fluency rate and the words are displayed in the teacher report. mode allows students to read the text independently. Both the fluency mode and reading mode feature general comprehension questions, in a multi-choice format to ensure that students have read the extract. Grammar and Punctuation LiteracyPlanet s grammar section includes over 500 exercises, and content covers the early primary years to senior schooling. Key concepts covered include: of speech, vocabulary, phrases, clauses, types of sentences, punctuation, and proof reading and editing. Students have the assistance of a grammar tip in each exercise, coupled with three examples, which are located in the tool bar. Each grammar tip provides a definition of the exercise to help students understand what they are being asked to do, to allow for a more independent learning experience. Many of the reading fluency extracts also feature in the comprehension section. Comprehension The comprehension section features hundreds of fiction and non-fiction extracts, covering a range of genres. These extracts are levelled using seven internationally recognised reading schemas: Recovery, Fountas and Pinnell, PM, Developmental Age (DRA), Rigby, Lexile and Wings. Students can select from eight categories: Creatures, Disasters, Discoveries, Mysteries, People, Bizarre, Sport and Miscellaneous. The questions that follow each extract target three key comprehension skills: literal, inferential, and metacognitive. These skills are targeted using twelve strategies for reading processing: main idea, facts and details, sequencing, cause and effect, comparing and contrasting, predicting, words in context, conclusions and inferences, fact and opinion, author s purpose, figurative language, and summarising. Many of the texts in the comprehension section also feature in the reading fluency section.
