Every product comes with two weeks of optional online and/or telephone support.  Please note that the only products which incur a specified price are the story and the booklin. All other products are paid for by donation only.

Activities for your child to do online

An activity for your child to do each week, featuring the Gnom Com character of your child’s choice. Covering adjectives and verbs, tricky spellings, punctuation, paragraphs, planning and writing a story, and lots more. Please request an example of the activities. (Flash sheets – see below – also help to embed literacy themes.) If your child responds to the activities with some short pieces of work, they will receive feedback from their chosen Gnom Com character, and a Gnom Com certificate for taking part. Price: Donation.

A story

Each story is short approximately  words long. You may like the story to be themed in particular way; perhaps educationally, or to touch upon a worrying issue with sensitivity and understanding. Feel free to discuss this with me. See an example below (Please note, this shows just the beginning of a story). £12.00

Two colourful worksheets

Each sheet will tackle a different literacy topic. You can choose the topic that best suits your child’s current requirements. The sheets can of course be photocopied and re-used. See examples below. Price: Donation.

Hello! We are Gnom Com
We love to help with self esteem, and with all kinds of literacy tasks. Perhaps your young person would like to send an email to us about a tricky piece of writing that they have to do. Perhaps they are worried about their spellings, how to use punctation, or how to describe things in interesting ways. And of course, many young people like to write to us when they are worried about things that are happening at school. We always reply, and you don’t have to pay.


                                                   Online safety is assured – all contact comes via a parent or guardian


                                         You can find out about each of us by clicking here: Gnom Com Have Fun!
