My Story stories - Personalise Decodable Readers Basic Code for pupils with autism - Phonics for SEN

(0)
REVISED August 2021 I have been working with some talented young illustrators, Asha Wilson and Chloe Barlow to revise the ‘My Story’ Stories and these are now available here. The ‘My Story’ stories are a set of seven phonically decodable basic code readers aimed at children with autism. Some pupils with autism or other additional needs can be super-focused on a special area of interest and prefer to engage with materials related to it to the exclusion of others. ‘My Story’ Stories give the flexibility to focus on the child’s area of interest when reading a book. All the books are about a character called Pat. Pat can be anyone or anything that appeals to the child – a cat, a train, a Lego figure, a unicorn… anything as long as it can be personified. Simply print out the book and print out enough pictures of ‘Pat’ to stick in the grey spaces. Then share the book with the pupil. Alternatively, the pupil could stick the pictures in after reading the text. Each of the seven books in the series corresponds to a set of sounds, as taught in Book 1 of the Phonics for Pupils with Special Educational Needs programme.

Sounds Maps - Alphabetic Code Charts - Phonics for SEN

(0)
A set of three A4 landscape posters that comprehensively map the sounds (phonemes) and the way they are represented by letters or groups of letters (graphemes or sound spellings). There are two types of maps included in the set. Maps 1 and 2 covers all the sounds showing all the ways each sound can be represented, i.e. showing the variation in the English language ‘code’. Map 3 covers specific sound spellings showing all the sounds that each sound spelling can represent, i.e. showing the overlap in the English language ‘code’. Note: These are intended as reference materials for adults working with pupils. For pupils with SEN this would be overwhelming for them to use these as a reference when reading and spelling. Also included is a Cumulative Map that shows when the code is introduced within the Phonics for SEN programme.

‘Good Spelling’ poster and set of pupil prompt cards. Each pupil can have their own desk top prompt card. Visually represents the sequential segmenting, sound by sound spelling strategy for spelling. A straightforward spelling strategy that complements any synthetic phonics approach to spelling. Works well in combination with the sound spelling posters and practice spelling booklets.

Word Catcher – Segment / Read / Spell Game Based on the cootie catcher / fortune teller / whirlybird, these remind me of my playground days many years ago. Print, cut out and fold up to make the Word Catcher. FIrst the pupil chooses a picture then counts the sounds in the word to give first number which is the number of movements opening and closing the catcher. Next the pupil chooses a number and makes that number of movements. Then the pupil chooses a number again and opens out word catcher. If there’s a word underneath the number then the pupil has to read it. If there’s a picture underneath the number then the pupil has to spell it (by writing it down). Includes: Basic Code: Sets 1-7 Word structure: VCC CVCC CCVC CCVCC Introduction to Advanced Code /sh/ /th/ /ch/ and /k/

Environmental Labels for Incidental Phonics - EYFS & Pre-formal SEN - Phonics for SEN

(0)
This pdf includes 16 pages of environmental labels suitable for the Early Years or pre-formal SEN classroom. Two sets included one with and one without pictures. Each label is coded to highlight letters and groups of letters (graphemes or sound spellings) to support reading. Coding includes a gradual left to right darkening of sound spellings to encourage blending through the word. Multi-syllable words display colour grading within the word for blending syllable by syllable and suffixes are shown in dark green. Includes coded modelled behaviour or the ‘good’ strategies to support positive behaviour. Pupils’ attention can be drawn to the sounds in words and their relationship to the graphemes in the words. Teachers and TAs can model blending to show how they use this knowledge to work out the word. This prepares pupils for phonics instruction ahead. Pupils should not be encouraged to learn the words as ‘visual wholes’ or ‘sight words’.

Movable Alphabet 3 - Alternative Teaching Sequence with Base Plates - Phonics for SEN

(0)
Movable alphabets are great for focusing your pupil’s attention on how words are put together and they are great for hands-on word building activities. They are also super-useful for pupils who have poor fine motor skills and find letter formation difficult, such as those pupils with physical disabilities or complex needs. There are five movable alphabets for you to choose from so you can select the most appropriate to meet your pupil’s needs. Movable Alphabet 3 is organised to reflect an alternative teaching sequence common to other programmes and is arranged in four sections: First section: Basic code (1:1 sound to letter correspondences), Second section: Introduction to advanced code (e.g. sounds /sh/ and /th/ etc) Third section: Advanced code (complex sounds that are represented in more than one way e.g. boat, note, go, snow, toe etc) in alphabetical order vowels then consonants. Fourth section: Focus Grid The Focus Grid is simply a set of shaded but otherwise blank squares that is placed just after the introduction to the advanced code section. Once the pupils start working in advanced code they have to deal with many sound spellings (graphemes). It would be rather bewildering for a pupil to have to trawl through all of them, so this handy section allows you to place just the sound spellings related to the sound you are currently focusing on for the pupil to choose from. In this way things are kept manageable. You could use Velcro dots to secure the cards to stop them slipping around when you are building a word. Note: when printing please make sure you accommodate any narrow margins. The five versions of movable alphabet have graphemes arranged: 1 in alphabetical order, 2 according to the teaching order of Phonics for Pupils with SEN, 3 according to a commonly used alternative teaching order, e.g. Sounds Write, then in alphabetical order in vowels and consonants. 4 layout as on a QWERTY keyboard (useful if you have a pupil with significant fine motor difficulties who is likely to type rather than write as a long-term recording method), 5 as separate colour coded grapheme cards with no base plates. In addition to the movable alphabet, version 4 also includes two Point and Spell Boards in keyboard layout. These could be used with the pupil pointing and the teacher scribing or by partner assisted scanning.

Word Chains – Self Checking Reading Card Set – Reading phrases with 2-5 words Sets 1-7 Word chains is a reading activity that pupils can work on independently as the card sets are ‘self-checking’. Download the pdf, print out and assemble the card sets. Instructions Lay the cards from one set out on the table with all the pictures face up (except for the tick card which is face down). The pupil: · turns over the starting traffic light card and reads the phrase on the back, · then selects the picture that matches the phrase they have just read, · then repeats, reading words and matching pictures until all cards have been used, · the last card they turn over will be the picture of the tick so they know they have finished and been correct throughout. If the pupil reads the word incorrectly and so chooses the wrong picture then the sequence will be broken, they won’t get through all the cards and will find the tick card before they have completed the whole sequence.

These Word Build Cards are designed to be used with the 40mm Phonics Discs sets made by Lothian Woodworks. The pdf contains Word Cards for: • 3, 4 and 5 sound words • 3 and 4 sound words with a split sound spelling (spilt vowel digraph) To use the child segments the focus word and matches a sound spelling for each sound by placing the appropriate disc onto the space on the card. In this way the child builds the word. The Phonics Discs are available directly from Lothian Woodworks as two sets. Set 1 contains 70 natural birch ply discs (40mm diameter), each with a letter / letter combination (grapheme) etched on. Set 2 contains 50 discs plus 5 split sound spellings on rectangles. Also included are advanced consonants, some of the less common sound spellings, duplicates for multiple word building and some blanks (handy for children with unusually spelt names). Available in two fonts (Sassoon Infant Std or Comic Sans MS) to suit your needs. Each set is £20, including UK postage. Overseas shipping available.

Infographics: Reading Purpose and Choice of Texts for Beginning and Developing Readers A parallel approach to sharing books with children based on the Simple View of Reading – Four Strands that children experience at the same time. 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? Debbie Hepplewhite (of Phonics International) and I have collaborated to make these 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.
