Lesson packs are in Arial typeface, 16pt up to Grade 5 or 6. Lesson packs are written in 14pt for higher grades. In some packs for Middle Primary School the written tasks section may be in 14pt. This is to save space and reduce the number of pages where sensible to do so.

In learning materials and most textbooks, the typeface is too small. Children in the lower grades are learning to read. After using the lesson packs on this site — and going back to regular texts — children complain, “It’s too small”, and turn away.

>Larger print encourages reading.
>> Our Lesson Packs make learning to read easier because the print is larger.

All the following features of our lesson packs are favourable to vision impaired children.

These lesson packs have clear black and white line drawings. Suitable for colouring as well. They enhance the text. There are no coloured diagrams or pictures.

Maths Packs on this site are hand-printed — and beautifully hand-printed!
Large and clear with plenty of space. They model hand-printing for students as well as set out maths tasks.

Most materials available on this site are about learning to read and write. Many have science, history, geography and family life content.  As we recommend buying a maths text book for the home, there are fewer maths packs.

Always check the size of the print before buying Maths textbooks. That advice is for all parents and teachers. Especially for vision impaired children, of course. Make sure there is

>>Less clutter on each page.
>>Fewer cartoon characters.
>>Labels on diagrams should be big enough so they are crystal clear when enlarged for vision impaired children. 

Feedback on these lesson packs is welcome.
