Letterland is a fantastic resource to use. I teach grade R learners. For most of them, English is their second or third language. I love the way Letterland teaches the basics of the English language and makes it fun. I would advise any teacher or parent to use Letterland products to help reinforce English as a language.
I have Living ABC and stories and use it everyday with my interactive board. My kids at school have really benefitted from using this programme.

Bug Club is a powerful whole school reading programme that combines stunning books and an incredible online reading world to hook children into a lifelong love of books and develop confident young readers.
Rather than focusing on a single set of characters Bug Club features ‘mini-series’ of 3-10 books, offering variety to keep children engaged, while providing motivation to move up the finely-graded levels so they can access the next book in the series.
Bug Club is designed to appeal to today’s children, with modern book design; characters they know and love from TV, film and games; an online reading world complete with virtual rewards that can be accessed via their laptop, tablet or even smart phone.
Bug Club comes with Progress & Assess, giving you a wide selection of book-banded tests and tracking tools to help you really understand your learners progress in all of the key reading fluency and comprehension skills.
Bug Club is now a well-established reading programme, so we have been able to properly evaluate its effectiveness.
