The Active Literacy Kit (ALK) is a great tool for teachers and teaching assistants to use with students who need support with basic literacy skills.
The Active Literacy Kit works really well with those children who are not yet ready for Units of Sound. Created by Walter Bramley, the Active Literacy Kit is a highly focused programme intended to build accuracy, fluency and automaticity in reading and spelling. ALK bridges the gap to Units of Sound by teaching letter/sound correspondence through to automatic three letter (CVC) word reading and spelling. There is also focus on vowel discrimination, rhyme and alliteration.
The Active Literacy Kit is suitable for:
- students aged 7 years and over
- all literacy difficulties, not just for dyslexic students
- individual and group teaching
