Move into Reading and Writing

Move into Reading and Writing

Move into Reading and Writing is a Kindergarten Parent Support program which strengthens home/school partnerships early in Kindergarten by giving parents the opportunity to come in and participate in literacy based activities with their child once a week for five weeks.

Our dynamic, informative and hands on program provides lots of ideas for home: home reading, treasure hunts, lists, notes, writing, making books from photos, sequencing (putting stories back together), environmental print and nursery rhymes.

All participants receive a take home folder with the ideas and work samples that have been completed during the program.

Reading and Writing On for Year One

Written by Tamara Hargraves presented by Year 1 Class teachers

The ‘Move into Reading’ and ‘Reading and Writing On’ Programs have been greatly influenced by My Favourite Native America Saying that goes like this:


Tell me and I’ll forget

Show me and I may remember

Involve me and I’ll understand

As well as the saying

What we learn with pleasure we never forget!

‘Reading and Writing On’ is the follow on program from the ‘Move into Reading’ Kindergarten Program. It is specifically designed for students in Year 1 and their parents.

It is a 5 week program where parents join their child at school weekly in the school hall for an hour of Literacy fun! It educates and demonstrates hands on activities for parents in the areas of:

  • Reading and Comprehension
  • The alphabet and use of a dictionary
  • Phonics and Spelling
  • Grammar and Punctuation      
  • Sight Words
  • Story Telling and News
