Literacy lessons for Grade R and Grade 1 children

Although Grade R and Grade 1 children have returned to school, they will still need special attention. We are concerned that these young ones are particularly at risk since they have missed five months of schooling – a time when they would have been taking their first steps as readers and writers.

However, the good news is that parents and older siblings can play an important role in supporting early language and literacy development with the right resources. We have therefore designed a simple set of ‘mini-lessons’ for parents to do at home with their children. The materials will guide parents to spend a structured 30 – 40 minutes with their child, following clear steps which will repeat over two-day cycles with a consolidation day on Friday.
