Free Lesson Plans and Resources
The lesson plan for each day is laid out in an easy, consistent way and the resources needed for each lesson are included in the manual too, directly alongside the lesson plan.
The curriculum is based on the proven Letters and Sounds design by the UK government, but is updated and extended into a fully resourced tool to fit the new UK guidelines.
And best of all… if you have at least one printed set of our lesson resources, you can download further copies to print off at no further cost. Just ask us for access to the download files.
All Aboard is designed to work in harmony with different dialects and with different school system requirements around the world.
We believe All Aboard Phonics is unique in this way. It is designed to be the first local-but-global phonics tool. You get the resources of a global solution, but tailored to your local need.
Free Training Resources
The training processes offered for phonics teaching are often cumbersome and very expensive. We do not believe that is necessary with modern technology.
Instead, we use a menu of bite-sized online training sessions, which are convenient for teachers to access and allow consistency to be maintained across the whole team at any time.
On top of those online resources, we are doing regular twilight zoom sessions, regional in-person events and you can pick up the phone to chat with us at any time! You can read more about our training here.
Free Integrated Intervention Processes
Our particular expertise at All Aboard Learning is how to help those children in each class who find phonics particularly hard.
In our All Aboard Phonics Plus manual you will have a simple evaluation process to determine what is causing the difficulty for a child. That will then set what the individualised education plan needs to be for that child.
Moving from good to excellent results in literacy at a school is driven by how you help these struggling learners. We can partner with you to aim for 100% success each year.
You can print all our lessons resources for free from the PDFs we share with you, but we also have a full set of beautifully finished printed materials that we can send to you.
The first step in getting started with All Aboard Phonics is for us to send you a copy of our printed resources to evaluate.
We have a complete set of short decodable books that integrate with the curriculum in the manuals, week by week.
If you already have decodable books based around the Letters and Sounds curriculum, then those will fit the phases of All Aboard Phonics too. Here is a sneak peek of one of our most popular Year 1 (1st Grade) books focusing on split digraphs.
Free Home Reading App Coming
While creating all of these classroom resources, we are also about to publish a complementary home reading app in the next few months. It has been 3 years in development.
The aim is to make home reading sessions more likely to happen and more successful, by reducing the stress and increasing the fun.
The core of the app, with these daily structured reading sessions based around games, will be free. If you want to add our library of ebooks, there will be an annual subscription charge.
Bespoke Resources Created for Free!
All Aboard Phonics has been designed by teachers for teachers, but we know you will have some great ideas that we can add.
So we are happy to create any resource that you ask for free of charge, if we think it will be useful for our other schools too. Your ideas can become part of All Aboard Phonics!
