‘I Love Reading’ or ‘ILR’ is a unique literacy program designed to facilitate the rapid learning of reading English.
This program takes the complexity out of the English language and makes decoding words easier and faster by helping early learners to grasp the English language from a young age.
The I Love Reading program takes the English Phonetic Code, technology developed by the Mamone family, and packages it into a practical and easily understood resource for literacy development.
Through the ILR program, students quickly move from ‘Learning to Read’ to ‘Reading to Learn’. From here, the rate of learning increases and the learning environment becomes a place of engaged students exploring educational concepts, skills and ideas, years ahead of their expected levels.
I Love Reading involves short, sharp sessions of intentional teaching of skills to facilitate the reading process.
This approach gives increased opportunities for creativity, open ended investigation and student driven learning. ILR helps develop a learning environment which fosters effective communication and encourages children to be confident and involved learners.
The ILR Program can be easily integrated with all the components of an early childhood friendly program, filled with rich, real life and hands-on experiences.
