Comprising 22 vowel sounds, 18 consonant sounds, and 7 digraph sounds, ILR uses a system of universally recognised colours and numbers, to allow every English sound and word to be ‘read’.

The ILR Program uses a unique colour and number system to identify the key phonetic sounds in the English language.

We love to partner with families to share the reading journey. Teaching ILR at home is designed to support both the Kindy and School learning experience as children make connections with their world and move from ‘Learning to Read’ to ‘Reading to Learn’; fostering a love for reading along the way.

Below is a simple video showing you how the colours relate to certain letters, a very basic start to understanding ILR.

Next week we will be looking introducing ILR cards along with activity ideas.  If you would like a more comprehensive overview of ILR and how you can teach at home you can sign up for ILR at home through the ILR website.
