Resources may change, according to the age range, however the underlying skills arethe same. 15 minutes of ‘reading and spelling brain training’ is needed every day, that includes; Phonemic Awareness Development (Speech Sound Harry) - no print. Linking Speech Sounds with Sound Pics (PA, Phonics and Fluency) using familiar and meaningful objects, books, street signs etc Speech Sound Clouds used.SpeedySSP Skills (Alphabet Code Knowledge, Speech Sounds and Sound Pic Blending, Segmentation, Manipulation) plus Speedy Sentence Structure.Close Your Eyes and Visualise (developing symbol imagery and visual imagery) Being able to visual scenes/ stories and also to visualise letters and words.You MUST have levelled readers that allow children to practice these skills.Miss Emma urges you to recognise the reality of ‘PM Readers’ which do not follow an order of teaching the phonemes and can therefore be detrimental to the majority of children, with regards to helping them learn to read quickly, for fluency and comprehension. For many children, PM readers contribute to damaged self-confidence, and they reduce the child’s desire to read independently, for enjoyment.
