All the extra support materials they provide. If you would like first to evaluate the merits of our approach in depth, then go to ' Why Sounds-Write?
I could hear her saying to herself the word over and over again and the first two sounds. It is not the teacher doing the work for the student.
Sounds write extended code
The training is delivered assuming little or no prior knowledge on the part of the trainees. A sound may be spelled by 1, 2, 3 or 4 letters. One spelling — different sounds. Each participant will receive a comprehensive manual containing all the lesson plans and materials needed to teach children at all levels how to read and spell. Then on a piece of paper I had three lines drawn, e. Then a couple of days later I was sitting at the table doing my reflection sheet that is part of the programme and Little Miss Three asked if we can do the activity we did the other day. Our children have made very good progress in reading and writing and we believe this rigorous programme has been key to raising standards of literacy. It is almost like a one stop shop, no more trying to scrounge together a heap of different resources to help you teach reading, writing and spelling. They do suggest that the age to start with children in this structured approach is about 4. Wowee what an eye opener this was for me.
I wrote the letters in the word on separate post-it notes and had them spread on the kitchen bench not in order.
It includes diagnostic assessments so you can work out exactly what skills students are using and what concepts they may already know.
This is vastly different from a traditional phonics programme, which is designed to focus on spellings, rather than sounds in the contexts of words. Example: rain, break, gate, stay.

The Initial Code In this part of the programme students are taught the essential skills segmenting, blending and phoneme manipulation needed in order to decode the English language.
Details of the programme, and the reasons for its outstanding reputation, are set out on the page 'About Us'. As Liz Lemon would say, "I want to go there".

There just aren't enough books around for older, grumpy readers who don't want to read "kids' stuff", so these also go on my far too long wish list. For other training offered to schools please click on the events tab where you can book courses, the training tab and resources tab will give youmore information about the courses. Well-designed, controlled comparisons of instructional approaches have consistently supported these components and practices in reading instruction:  Direct teaching of decoding, comprehension, and literature appreciation;  Phoneme awareness instruction;  Systematic and explicit instruction in the code system of written English;  Daily exposure to a variety of texts, as well as incentives for children to read independently and with others. I could hear her saying to herself the word over and over again and the first two sounds. In this way, pupils, teachers and parents can read anything the pupil has written. You then use this information to work out where to start the individual child. You will not be disappointed. Other school use aphonic approach but while they may spend considerable sums of money on phonic resources they do no spend the money on training staff who use them. I prefer to introduce all the vowel spellings in one-syllable words before moving on to longer words. Our training The Sounds-Write training provides teaching practitioners with: a theoretical overview of the programme, which is soundly based on the principles underlying how children learn most effectively; a discussion of assessment for the purpose of informing teaching practices and enabling teaching practitioners to gauge accurately where to start pupils in the programme for intervention purposes; all the main lessons in the programme, with supervised practice on each one; an introduction to 'teaching through errors', with practical workshops, lesson planning and reading in text; videos of the programme being taught to a whole class, small groups and individually for demonstration and discussion; a discussion of the most popular reading schemes and how the Sounds-Write teaching approach can enable children to read them successfully; an end-of-course guided assignment to help participants reflect on, organise and consolidate what has been covered in the course. The programme begins with sounds in language and moves to sounds in the written words. The Initial Code In this part of the programme students are taught the essential skills segmenting, blending and phoneme manipulation needed in order to decode the English language. Sounds-Write is a brilliant phonics programme for all pupils from Nursery but it also enables us to teach pupils with no English, or with specific learning difficulties so that no gaps exist in performance within year groups. This ability to express oneself in writing from the start of school gives children enormous confidence, which naturally feeds back into the other kinds of learning taking place within the school curriculum.
The Best Bits Some of the parts that I particularly like about this programme for teaching reading include: It can be used with individual students, small groups or for whole classes.
