The 3 Bees Collection
Wherever you see the 3 Bees symbol , this title contains material relating to the Being Becoming & Belonging principles of the Early Years Framework.
Ladder Learner Resources.
Information in these books are structured to create a bridge between low and high level learning, utilising the continuity of repetition and imagery to bridge understanding. Books with this logo will have one large font sentence and a small font paragraph with further explanation. Teachers can choose to read as little or as much as is suitable at the time and expand on the topic with repeated readings.
An all inclusive font for early readers
Evidence shows that the first fonts children are made to read can either discourage learning or ignite a passion for reading. After much research into supporting children learning to read, we decided to use a font made by the experts at Lift Education, as contracted by the Ministry of Education in New Zealand.
Our new font is designed to nurture life long readers for all children, including those with vision impairment, learning challenges and dyslexia.
We know how hard teachers work, so to make your day easier, we have created complimentary teachers’ notes. These notes will allow you to use our resources as the basis for enquiry learning and play-based activities which are aligned with national Early Years Learning Framework curriculum. These include plenty of craft ideas, games and fun science activities. Getting the teachers’ notes for your Enlighten Press books is easy and free. Simply visit our ‘teachers’ notes’ page under the ‘resource info’ tab in our website menu. Create your personal login by entering an email address and a password. Once you have access to our members only area you can download a PDF of the teachers notes for your books.
