As summer looms and that long extensive break from the formality of school stretches out before students like an endless highway, I feel a sense of anxiety for parents and teachers.
JillE Literacy provides an ideal resource to re-engage children in literacy learning, to catch up essential skills and get them hooked on reading—this summer and all year long!
JillE Literacy was created by educator, author, and international literacy consultant Jill Eggleton, QSO. Since her earliest days as a classroom teacher in New Zealand, Jill has known that there is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading.
Teachers need books that work as hard as they do. Today’s teachers have more demands on their time than ever. JillE Literacy lets teachers spend less time planning and more time teaching.
Engagement is key. There is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading. To engage young readers, teachers need books and poems that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity.
Foundational literacy skills need to be explicitly and systematically taught. You cannot read if you can’t decode accurately. However, you cannot learn to read by just learning to decode. JillE Literacy embeds explicit instruction and repeated practice in foundational literacy skills throughout every text, uniquely using highly engaging books and poems rather than the usual dull, decodable texts.
