What resources will I need?

The extensive range of Letterland resources may leave you confused at to what you will need in your classroom. The first consideration is to the age of students you are working with, as Letterland has been developed into four product ranges;
    • Early Years - for children 4-5 (Kindy, Prep, Pre-Primary)
    • Primary Years - for children 5-6 (Year 1)
    • Advanced Program - for children 6-8 (Year 2-3)
    • ELT program - an ESL/EFL program (not discussed here, see link to this section under Teacher above)


To see how Letterland seamlessly flows from one range to the next please view the progression chart by clicking here. For each of the Early Years, Primary Years or Advanced resource ranges the essential elements you will need are a teacher Guide, class wall frieze, songs CD's as well as flashcards and copymasters. Another useful guide when viewing our pricelist is to refer to the REF column as to whether an item is Essential Highly Recommended or Optional.
