The key components of reading and writing are integrated within the learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. They are delivered through teaching practices that emphasise explicit instruction, practice and feedback.
While reading and writing are integrated within your child's school, parents and carers also play a vital part in supporting their children when learning to read.
Helping young children to learn to read: What parents can do (A parent guide) is for parents and carers of children in Prep to Year 2 to support and build their children’s literacy confidence at home, while they are learning to read.
These factsheets provide information to support children’s reading at home and at school.
