  • List of books used for teaching the Accelerated Literacy teaching sequence

    in the National Accelerated Literacy Program The purpose of this booklist is to provide suggestions of books recommended for use in teaching the Accelerated Literacy approach. The books listed are not the only books used to teach the Accelerated Literacy approach and are by no means exclusive of other books teachers may know and enjoy.

    Book Teaching

    Notes Transition, YEAR 1 The books listed for Reception (Kindergarten, Transition, Pre Primary) and Year 1 are not all meant to be read independently by children during their first year at school. Books that can be shared by classes in their first year of school will usually have short segments that repeat often in stories. These short segments of the story can be used for Accelerated Literacy teaching sequences. Later in the same year or in the next year these familiar stories can be revisited and children will be able to read larger sections of them. The book list for these classes has therefore been divided into two sections - picture books that have repeating patterns that can be used with very early readers, and picture books with simple text that children can read themselves.
