The Ants in the Apple Literacy Program comprises a large number of texts grouped by strand, plus a range of classroom resources.
Although each of these strands is able to ‘stand alone’ they are designed to be combined into an integrated literacy program. The weekly spelling list provides the central core on which the other literacy strands are based.
The Ants in the Apple Numeracy Program comprises texts in three groups
Each mathematics book includes an assessment package to place students at the correct step in the teaching sequence, extensive practice samples for each step in the sequence and discrimination exercises to maintain previous learning. The ‘operations’ books also include teaching scripts and diagrams to facilitate the teaching process, and a cueing system on the worksheets to support students through the acquisition of each concept.
