I use Big Books, Book Notes and additional teaching resources relevant to my year level
Plan lessons by searching for letters, sounds, words or books in Teacher Resources or Library. Accessing the handwriting support resources is also a good direction as using teacher and support resources ties into the resources you provide for learning and gives a well-rounded understanding of reading concepts.

I use Manage Lessons to edit levels or reset placement tests for my students to ensure they are working at the correct level
Allow for differentiated learning where your students are working above or below their year level and analyse student placement test results and adjust if required. These directions are about ensuring students aren’t left behind by altering their work levels to a point where a student can learn best.

Ensure students are working on the activities that support your teaching program to balance custom learning with core class learning. Setting assignments for your students reinforces topic-based learning.
