6 Critical Steps Towards Confident Reading & Spelling – Try Some Games:

step1Step 1 – Knowing the sounds

A child learns the sounds and matches them to a letter(s).

step1Step 2 – Reading words with these sounds

Using the group of learned sounds, children begin blending simple CVC words.

step3Step 3 – Spelling words with these sounds

Next, children use the learned sounds to begin segmenting words to spell.

step4Step 4 – Reading camera/sight words

Sight/Camera words, such as ‘the’ and ‘was’ are tricky to read but are essential because they occur so often in children’s books and writing.Practise reading these words.

step5Step 5 – Spell camera/sight words

Next, children learn to spell these irregular, high frequency words so they can move onto writing sentences.

step5Step 6 – Sentence reading

We put all these skills together to read sentences and stories!

Heather Dewatteville, Worongary State School, QLD
Already seeing improvement with my son in prep and loving the reports for my students in year 2…excellent for Reading Recovery!
Susan Craig, Rangeway Primary School, WA
I have seen a huge improvement in my Kindy children’s letter recognition and the speed in which they are now able to locate and remember. Some are even starting to blend the CVC words. It is a fantastic program!
Wendy Altman, Kesser Torah College, NSW
The children love it. It allows for whole class interaction and it’s multi-sensory. It reinforces our explicit teaching to give the extra practise children need.
Lauren Stretton, Covenant Christian School, NSW
The kids are loving the interactive games! The repetition is great and the consistency of the program means students know what to do but get excited about the new and different characters (they love Super Ted!).
