As we settle into another week of lockdown in Sydney, we thought it would be useful to share another free resource to support early reading development.
In this free video modelling resource (available as a PDF or in Google Slides), we introduce high frequency grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs) following a sequence aligned with the popular Sounds Write synthetics phonics program. We introduce the GPCs in small groups, starting with <a, i, m, s, t>.
Each video includes a model, followed by a grapheme review to check for knowledge and recall. Each subsequent video builds on the last by introducing a new group of sounds, and then reviewing all sounds previously introduced.
For more on how early letter-sound relationships, check out our articles:
- Teaching the alphabet to your child? Here’s what you need to know and
- For beginning readers, where should we start teaching? Phonics, sight words, or both?
