To be able to decode, children need a range of basic phonics skills in place so they can easily work out new words in reading and spelling. Firstly, they need to have good phonological awareness and be able to hear and discriminate sounds in words. They need to be able to hear, read and write the phonemes of the English language. And they need to be skilled in blending and segmenting these phonemes for use in reading and spelling. Developing these phonics skills helps set children up for success in literacy.
This course is aimed at teachers and teacher aides working with children aged 5-7 but is also invaluable for anyone working further up the school with any child challenged by spelling in writing and decoding in reading. Parents welcome.
Please note this course was recorded during a live webinar with participants. The online video format of this course allows you to self-pace your learning and make it work with when and where you want to learn.
