Managing HighFrequency Words in the Early Stages of Instruction Phonically coded word list of the top 200 high frequency words Word Cards Nearly all words can be phonically coded and there are actually very few common exception or tricky words. However, we do need to bear in mind that the very point about these words is that they are high in frequency and so are likely to appear in even simple text and pupils may encounter them when at a very early stage of learning to read and working through a phonics programme. These words are not tricky but are inconvenient. So, how do we work on these words? The solution is that we need to take a gentler approach to these with a long-term view of the situation. The high frequency words are studied intensively when the child works on the appropriate focus sound as they work through the programme, but a scaffolded approach is taken to supporting children to read and spell high frequency words when they encounter them in the early stages. In this document there is a handy list of the top 200 decodable words coded and organised by main sound and their appearance in the teaching sequence of the Phonics for SEN programme. The cards in this pack primarily help staff to support pupils to read and spell the words as they arise. Staff in schools have varying experiences, knowledge and understanding of phonics and the cards are intended to support them to better understand how the inconvenient words are put together. There is information about: . the number of sounds in the word and what they are, . the sound spellings (graphemes) – indicated by a larger gap between them, . why the word is inconvenient – how it fits into phonics progression, . blending - colour coded sound spellings get darker as the pupil blends though the word. The words selected are taken from the DfE’s document, The Framework for Reading – Teaching the foundations of reading July 2021, plus a few additions. Although primarily designed to be a tool to support staff, the cards could be keep on hand and used with pupils to support the reading and spelling strategies above, as needed when reading or writing. They are NOT intended to be used as flashcards or a display that encourages pupils to learn the words visually and remember them as whole words.

Infographic: Reading Purpose and Choice of Texts - Teacher and Parent Versions - Phonics for SEN

Reading Purpose and Choice of Texts for Beginning and Developing Readers We all want our pupils to experience a range of reading opportunities but how do we choose the right book or text for them? What about sending books home? What about curriculum books? And how do we ensure that our pupils experience a rich oral and printed language environment? I have collaborated with Debie Hepplewhite to make two infographics to help teachers consider: • the purpose of reading, • where the activity might take place, • the level of adult involvement, and • which books or texts are most appropriate. The parent/carer’s version ‘Reading with Your Child – in school and at home’ complement’s the teacher’s infographic, useful when talking to them about reading and their child. Many thanks to Lynne Moody for her input into the parent/carer’s version.
