Literacy Lift Off is a team approach to literacy incorporating the use of stations to teach different areas of literacy. These stations include a writing station, a word work station, a new book station and a familiar reader station.
Activities at these stations may include:
Re-reading familiar books to build fluency and confidence
Being introduced to and attempting to read a new book
Composing and recording their own messages
Reconstructing the story which has been cut-up
Exploring how letters/words work using magnetic letters and whiteboards.
Children take part in Literacy Lift Off in one term per year in Senior Infants and First Class.
