The Better Start Literacy Approach | Te Ara Reo Matatini (BSLA) professional support will be delivered by the University of Canterbury and is available from 2021.
The BSLA is an integrated approach to developing vocabulary, oral, listening, spelling, writing and reading skills in the first year of learning, utilising the Ready to Read Phonics Plus texts. It focuses on the link between spoken and written language, systematically supporting children’s phonological and phonic awareness, letter-sound knowledge and oral language.
The BSLA and Ready to Read Phonics Plus texts professional support is designed to complement existing approaches to teaching early literacy and build on current school and teaching practices. It uses the expertise of literacy specialists to support teachers.
Ready to Read Phonics Plus texts and BSLA will support teachers to notice and respond to each learner’s literacy needs from the day they start school and includes resources for whānau to understand and support their children’s literacy learning.
BSLA was developed by University of Canterbury in New Zealand schools and is informed by international research.
