Anyone can join this new group ! Orthographic Mapping: From Theory to Practice.
How do we use Phase 1 and 2 to get students to the stage of 'orthographic mapping'? ie reading texts with automaticity and understanding, without having to stop to work out the words!
The following are from the main facebook page (as the videos in the support group are private) So please join the PM group to watch videos like these ! You can then watch the activities in more detail here, on conDUCKtors.com !
The Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach
The Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach is a way to teach reading, writing and spelling. but can be used in various ways. For example Australian Prep and Year 1 teachers can use the class pack and follow the Phase 1 and 2 routines, to cover every strand of the Australian Curriculum for English. No more 'mix and matching' of programs!
The 30 Minute Phonics program can be used as a stand alone phonics program. and the Speedy Six used as a whole school approach to teaching spelling. The High Frequency Word resources can be used as a standalone 'sight words' program. There is also an intervention program used with students who need to catch up, as they did not have SSP in earlier grades (or have moved from a different school) or who have learning differences and need learning support. If new to SSP we suggest you do the online training as all options are covered. You will have a six month access pass, and any teachers at your school can use it. This is ideal if you have relief teachers or new starters.
Because we now have these standalone programs you can order a 'Code in a Box' depending on your needs.
So the 'Spelling Code in a Box' 'Phonics Code in a Box' (for 1 student or a class of 25 students) and a HFW Code in a Box if you are simply looking to use SSP to teach 400+ 'sight words' quickly and easily.
Thanks for your patience while we take photos of the products, which all come in.. you've guessed it...a box ! So you can also easily store the resources and keep them organised.
