After much work, collaboration and moderation both the writing and reading progressions have been kid-speaked for your use. Many thanks to those people who assisted with this process! tinyurl.com/nzliteracyprogressions

    The Kid-speaked literacy progressions are no longer accessible from the Google site. I have uploaded what I had on Word docs into the resources https://vln.school.nz/resources/view/988499/kid-speaked-literacy-progressions

    Have you seen the Literacy Progression Frameworks? These are also useful.

    Hi, I am having trouble accessing the writing progression in kidspeak. It only comes up with an error message. If I was to share my email, may I ask if someone could send me the document/s?

    Really excited to see how these could enrich our teaching and learning and appreciate all the hard work that has gone into producing this resource.

    Kia ora Shane

    Thank you so much for your sharing and for your hard work!  I was talking
    with a school recently who were keen to produce a document exactly like
    this so you will have saved them, and I'm sure countless others, a task.

    I have a wondering for everyone reading to consider and share
    ideas...please... we use the kid-speak progressions so the students can
    access the learning intentions as well as clearly understand and articulate
    their learning with language they understand, but when we as the educators
    are recording and creating matrix to track and monitor progress we need to
    use the LLP etc directly otherwise the we run the risk of watering down the
    learning intended and loosing sight of what the documents actually say.

    I would be interested to hear what others think around this.

    Kia ora everyone,

    Thanks for sharing your resources / ideas. Now it's our turn:)

    We spent some time looking at the Literacy Progressions in Kid Speak and decided that we would create our own format for teachers. The attached A3 sheets are currently being used by teachers as a tool to assist them with their Teaching as Inquiry journey re Acceleating the Progress of Priority Learners.

    So far the teachers have used the resources in different ways. Some teachers have highlighted them e.g. 'Gold for Glory, Pink to Think'. Laminating the sheets has made it easier for teachers to write student names / initials and then wipe off as student needs change.

    Feel free to use as you wish ... sharing is caring :)

    Hi Shane,

    When you are in the comment box you will see "Embed content" just above the box on the right. Choose upload file, find it on your computer, upload and then click on the file once loaded to place it on the page. I hope this works ok for you but ask again if you have any problems. 

    Cheers, Jill
