InitiaLit–F (Foundation)​
whole-class initial instruction in literacy

About InitiaLit–Foundation

InitiaLit–Foundation (InitiaLit–F) is a whole-class program for initial instruction in literacy. Implemented across four terms, InitiaLit–F offers an explicit and effective model for teaching reading and related skills to children in their first year of school in a fun and engaging way.

InitiaLit–F focuses on two main components:

  1. Phonics, to systematically and explicitly teach the basic alphabetic code in a set sequence. In addition to learning letter-sound correspondences and how these are applied to reading and spelling, children will be introduced to common morphemes and simple grammatical concepts.
  2. Vocabulary, oral language and listening comprehension through quality children’s literature. Detailed lessons, including writing tasks, are provided for each of the storybook titles selected for use with the program.

For InitiaLit–F First-time Purchasers

To maintain integrity of delivery and ensure you get the most out of your program, purchase of a InitiaLit Professional Development (PD) Workshop is required with the first purchase of an InitiaLit–F Kit.

To complete your First-time Purchase, please register for a InitiaLit PD Workshop, and when prompted, add the InitiaLit–F Kit to your cart.  If you would like to purchase more than one InitiaLit-F Kit, please increase the quantity in the cart before checking out.

Once you have completed the checkout process for these items, we will activate your InitiaLit–F Membership and send a confirmation by email within two business days. You will then be able to return to the shop to purchase additional consumables and replacement components.

Customers that have already completed the InitiaLit PD Workshop as part of either an InitiaLit–1 or InitiaLit–2 Membership program are not required to attend the InitiaLit PD Workshop again; you may purchase your InitiaLit–F Kit on its own, using the respective button below.
