Learn With Mrs Hearn

This site is dedicated to providing high interest and quality reading resources for students that may be struggling readers or learning English as an Additional Language.

As an educator specialised in literacy, I am committed to designing culturally-engaging, self-to-text educational materials for reading programs and parents.

My initial spark to develop the stories came through teaching experiences with my amazing students from multi-cultural and disadvantaged backgrounds. As most learners are visual learners, I believe in the power of a picture and the comprehension strategy of personal connections with playfulness and humor!

JJ Hearn Portrait

I photograph the child’s surrounding environment to develop the stories, word choice, and meaningful comprehension questions that accompany each story.

My books are recommended by the Gauteng Province Education Department, South Africa and are used by literacy intervention NGO's in the Western Cape Province.

Thank you for visiting. Happy reading!
