Teaching the Sounds

You want your class to achieve letter-sound mastery, producing the sound as quickly as they can tell you their own name. Our no-prep Phonics Lessons deliver every step of learning the sounds, from the introduction of the sounds and their representing letters to at-their-fingertips mastery with our 5-step process.

Talk about the sounds in the context of real words (for example: “Is the ‘sh’ of shed in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd position? Let’s talk about where we normally find the ‘sh’ letters in a word.”).

Teaching Blending

With a library of over 3,500 words and 2,000 sentences, you’ll never get stuck thinking of the best words for your lesson. Your phonics lesson is structured for you; we break the words into sounds and provide pictures to grow vocabulary and aid comprehension. Next, speed reading activities help your class become fluent readers who can then make the leap to sentences.

Teaching Segmenting

Once children have become confident with blending, it’s time to reverse the process and spell words with the target sounds. Our structured no-prep Phonics Lessons help you guide children through the five steps to spell words:

Step 1 – Say the Word

Using a bank of 3,500 picture supported words, children say the decodable word or listen to the audio.

Step 2 – Stretch the Word

This word is then stretched to emphasise each of the sounds.

Step 3 – Count the Sounds

Using our interactive sound buttons, children listen for and count the sounds.

Step 4 – Represent the Sounds

Next, write down the letter or letters which represent each of the sounds.

Step 5 – Check It Looks Right

Children compare their answer to the word.

Spelling Example Step 5 – Revealing the answer in Spelling.

Applying Learning with Sentences

Teachers can build on children’s learning by switching reading to 2,000 word and picture supported sentences for both reading and writing. In addition, our ‘word support’ guides your class if they get stuck on reading or spelling a particular word.
