Abecedarian Approach to Reading

At Little Scholars we encourage the 3a Abecedarian Approach Australia to reading. This is where children are active in conversational reading.

The 3a Approach encourages the adult and child to go ‘back and forth’ in conversation. There are three main levels to try – the first level is seeing, then showing, then saying.

Make it a conversation by asking your child to do something and not always following the words in a book.

“Can you see an owl ? “Can you say owl ?” “Can you show me an owl ?”

Family involvement

Working with families is a core part of the Abecedarian approach. The program aims to support families to grow in confidence as their children’s first educator.

Take home resources

All of our campuses have take home Abecedarian reading resources for families to borrow. Simply ask your Campus Manager or Educator for more information.
