Choice Boards are designed to enable students to consolidate learning at home. They can be shared with parents/carers for students to pick an activity to do every day during this unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak. Activities do not need daily guidance but may require learning packages to be sent home.

Schools will need to:

  1. Provide teacher and student access to Letterland Phonics Online. We've made it possible for schools to access this resource for free whilst they are closed due to COVID-19. Just apply as a school here and it will include access for teachers and students. It's very important that schools apply on behalf of parents/carers.
  2. Share the Choice Board and resources below with parents. If parents have a reliable internet connection just share this web page https://us.letterland.com/g1-choice-board. Otherwise, we recommend that you prepare learning packages to be sent home by downloading as many of the resources below as you can.

Parents will need to:

  1. Make sure your school has provided you with access to Phonics Online.
  2. Download the Choice Board.
  3. Pick an activity to do everyday at home! (The resources you need for the activities can be found below. If you don't have a printer or reliable internet access, ask your school to send you a physical learning package of the resources found at https://us.letterland.com/g1-choice-board).
