The MiniLit Kit provides teachers with a comprehensive set of explicit and systematic reading instruction lessons along with all necessary materials to support struggling Year 1 and 2 readers in small groups, within a school setting. The Kit can also be used on a one-to-one basis.
The 80 lessons are divided into two levels and target the key areas required for successful literacy development: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Level 1 teaches basic letter/sound knowledge, while Level 2 teaches commonly used digraphs. An independent assessment of MiniLit, commisioned by Evidence for Learning, has found that MiniLit has positive effects on foundational reading skills.
The MiniLit Story Book Cards
, which can be purchased to accompany the program, will help teachers deliver the Story Book Reading component of the MiniLit program.
MiniLit is only available for purchase by schools. Training in the program is required prior to implementation. PMIN001 (MiniLit Kit Only) is available only if you have previously purchased PMIN1 (MiniLit PD + Kit) or WMIN001 (MiniLit PD Only).
