Embraced by the principal, staff, and whole community, the Woorabinda students are proudly improving their literacy results. Being a physically active program with jumping to focus attention and concentration and ‘fire up the brain’; exaggerated ‘camera shot’ looking; large straight arm tracking movements; and big ‘rainbow writing’ in workbooks from prep to Year 3, the students are busily and happily engaged in the program, wanting to do well, and gaining confidence as they do. Being a true multisensory program with students writing, looking, hearing, and saying simultaneously, students with any hearing difficulties are minimally compromised. Based on neuroscience research, this explicit teaching program is effective because it connects and activates simultaneously, three very important brain areas for learning literacy – the motor, visual and auditory areas. It therefore combines handwriting, phonics and visual and working memory skills at the same time.

Easily and consistently used in the classroom, as well as a one-on-one situation in learning support, this whole school, developmentally sequenced, consistent handwriting, spelling and reading program accelerates student learning from Beginners to Year 6. Book 7 is also included in the Write2Spell2Read program for extension students. Covering correct formation of letters and numbers, sounds, spelling and reading, Write2Spell2Read is a perfectly suited program for superior learning outcomes. Resources include a whole primary school Interactive Whiteboard Program, Student Practise Books (Beginners to Year 3), Student and Teacher’s Resource Books (Years 4 to 6), Wall Cards, Desktop Cards, Spelling Rules and Guidelines Book and Classroom Posters.

The consistent whole school Interactive Whiteboard Program allows quick access and easy differentiation of spelling words to a higher or lower level for average, extension and support students, but at the same time provides consistency of teaching and learning. It also links spelling words with spelling rules where indicated. The scope and sequence gives instant access to the lesson of the day. For younger students (Beginners to Year 3) Practise Workbooks are provided for large ‘rainbow writing’, to allow for repetitive writing of numbers and the letters or letter combinations that are used to make sounds. The correct formation of letters and the change to cursive writing are also covered in the Handwriting Practise Workbooks to prevent reversals. The compatible Wall Card System that matches the Interactive Whiteboard Program is perfect for lower primary, smaller classes, and learning support students.

Indigenous students deserve the same opportunities to achieve literacy success as any other child in Australia. Write2Spell2Read is making a real difference to learning literacy for indigenous students, closing the gap and delivering measurable improvements and long-term outcomes, and ensuring that all students can write, spell and read for a successful future.
