The Literacy Continuum

‘All aspects of the literacy and numeracy continuums are helpful in determining a detailed map of each student's understandings. However, different aspects take on greater importance at different times in a student's development. For example, counting is an important component of early numeracy but once established, is a less central aspect of later numeracy development. Similarly, aspects of literacy, such as phonemic awareness, whilst acting as an enabler of early literacy, are limited when it comes to later development.’
