This PowerPoint presentation is designed to support teaching and learning the ‘ss’ consonant digraph. It contains…

♦ Sound and picture slides.
♦ Decodable ‘real word’ slides (colour-coded and black).
♦ Decodable ‘alien word’ slides (colour-coded and black).
♦ Animated, decodable ‘root word’ slides.
♦ A slide showing three levels of decodable words containing the ‘ss’ grapheme.
♦ A set of spelling pictures with a link to the words.
♦ Three ‘silly sentences’ containing lots of ‘ss’ words.
♦ An interactive ‘Real or Alien Word?’ quiz.
♦ An interactive ‘Which spelling is correct…?’ quiz.

Words are displayed in a pre-cursive font similar to that used in the Year 1 Phonics Check.

The file is in .pps format and will work in PowerPoint from 2003 onwards. If you’re not sure if it will work on your system, please download our free a-e (split digraph) sample to check.
