Phonics, word recognition and early literacy training and resources for teachers, teacher aides and whānau.

At Yolanda Soryl Literacy, we believe in giving every child an opportunity to learn and experience the joy of reading. The training and resources we provide include the fundamental components of The Science of Reading: phonemic awareness, oral language, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. All as part of an integrated approach to learning literacy.

We acknowledge that children learn to read in varying ways, requiring their teachers to draw on a broad tool kit of methods to teach them.

Since 2005, Yolanda Soryl and her team have empowered over 20,000 educators with the knowledge, tools and confidence to provide children with the phonics, word recognition and early literacy skills they need.

Structured literacy designed for the New Zealand classroom.

Phonics, word recognition and early literacy training and resources for schools and whānau.

Congrats Sheena Cameron and Louise Dempsey for the publication of their latest teaching resource: The Poetry Book. 📖

I am a fan of all their resources but am particularly excited to see this exciting new and oh so practical guide to teaching poetry!

Listening to, reading and writing poetry enriches language and vocabulary, encourages creative thinking and develops reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. 🧠

The creative but scaffolded nature of poetry makes it especially helpful for ‘at risk’ or reluctant writers. ✍️

The Poetry Book contains detailed information and fun activities that will encourage even the most poetry-averse teacher to have a go!
