Refresher Sessions - for teachers that are familiar with teaching Letterland and already have some practical experience. Teachers will leave the session with an understanding of how Letterland Strategies & Routines develop over time and learn in more detail about lesson structure and daily or weekly timings.
Next Steps Sessions - for teachers that are very experienced with teaching Letterland. Teachers will leave the session with an in depth knowledge of Letterland Strategies & Routines and learn about extension ideas for small group work, center management, differentiated activities and independent work.
Our self-paced, online training courses are appropriate for any educator who will be using the Letterland Kindergarten Teacher's Guides. Each course is asynchronous, which means you can log on and off multiple times to complete the course at your own pace. Courses are organized into modules that include video clips, downloads, quizzes and assignment activities including a response activity designed to give you a chance to reflect on your own instruction.

All our virtual sessions offer grade level appropriate instruction for teachers using Letterland resources. Relevant teaching strategies will be modelled by our experienced Letterland Trainers who will motivate teachers to build on their existing knowledge. Where possible the sessions include instant polling to ensure successful implementation and fidelity to Letterland. Teachers will need to refer to their Letterland Teacher's Guides regularly to ensure they get the most out of the virtual session.
