Letter Knowledge: A Teacher's Story. Early Literacy and Assessment for Learning (K-3) Series
Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL)
Hannah is a Pacific island grade 1 teacher in a local village school. She teaches in her native Pacific language and has established a 90-minute daily literacy block in which she focuses on literacy-related activities. As Hannah begins to prepare for the year and map out her ideas, she is aware of the need to gather basic information on each of her students. In the area of print literacy, she realizes how important it is to determine how her students know and use the symbols of the alphabet. Written by the staff of the Pacific Communities with High-performance In Literacy Development (Pacific CHILD) project at Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL), this booklet, third of the five-part Early Literacy and Assessment for Learning (K-3) Series, shares a teacher's experiences in creating a rich learning environment that enhances letter learning for young students.
