Letterland

Lyn Wendon

Letterland is a systematic and explicit phonic literacy resource and has been helping children learn to read and write for many years. In fact 2008 marked 40 years since Lyn Wendon (pictured opposite) first created Letterland in order to help failing children who were constantly baffled by print.

We would encourage you to visit the Letterland site at http://www.letterland.com/.

Letterland features which make it so special include:

  • Friendly letter characters provide strong visual memory cues so children learn and retain phoneme/grapheme correspondences quickly
  • Daily blending and segmenting activities which make word-building fast and effective
  • Focused multi-sensory activities to activate all learning channels
  • The easy-to-follow instructions included with every title leave you more time for your young learners
  • A wide range of learning resources, including teacher's guides, story books, readers, software, posters, games and CDs, ensures Letterland can grow with your child
  • Built-in visual and verbal clues ensure correct letter formation, provide reasons for capitals and digraphs and reduce confusions like b/d, p/q, s/z, n/u and m/w.

There are resources designed for both home or school use so please choose the appropriate link above to find out more.
