Professional Learning

We are delighted to support educators with various professional learning development opportunities in their teaching using a structured literacy approach.

Our professional learning workshop “Cracking the alphabetic code! Read, write and spell with mastery. Implementing a systematic, synthetic phonics approach” is a 1-day workshop presented by highly-skilled New Zealand teacher, Jude Tabuteau. The workshop assists teachers in gaining an understanding of the key theories behind the Science of Reading and the Science of Learning and how this is effectively implemented in Year 1 and 2 classrooms. It is free in various locations in Auckland in 2024. It will be rolled out to other locations later in the year. Click below for more information.

We also have a 23-minute professional development video which supports teachers in their teaching of synthetic phonics. The video explains what a structured literacy approach involves and how it can be implemented in the classroom. It also explores the key features of the Sunshine Decodables programme, showing how it is structured, the order of teaching, what the books contain and the various elements of the programme. In addition, we have 10 videos following a year 2/3 teacher as she uses the Sunshine Phonics Decodables books with a student.

Finally, our Sunshine Blog discusses topics of interest to teachers, with a new post each month.
