Managing HF Words - 'Inconvenient' Words - Phonics for SEN

(0)
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 the programme takes 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. 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.

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.

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/

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.

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.

Flippies - Template and Instructions - Sensory Dynamic Blending - PhonicsforSEN

(0)
Flippies are card stacks that are put together in such a way that when the child runs their fingers over it, the individual cards flip up revealing the grapheme. This is a great sensory activity for dynamic blending. As each card flips up the child can say the sound that matches the letter / letters (grapheme or sound spelling). Encourage the child to push the sounds together to blend dynamically. Can use the template to build any word up to four sounds long.

Word Chains – Self Checking Reading Card Set – Reading Single Words VCC CVCC CCVC CCVCC 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 word on the back, · then selects the picture that matches the word 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.

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.
