    Hello Amanda.

    I am a teacher in Sydney with 35 years experience, who has written a K-6 English literacy program that has been developed for iPads.

    You may be interested in having a look at the website and downloading the free lessons. There are two apps (the Kindy and Literacy 1-6), which comprise 28 modules, each with 30 units of work.

    You may like to consider putting it on your recommended list, as it is the only one of its kind in the world and which has a developmental program in app form.

    Please email me about your webinars and contact me if you would like to know more about me and my work.

    Many thanks,

    Marie Cullen
