Program Overview

Sounds-Write is an evidence-based highly structured, synthetic, linguistic phonics program utilising an exciting and highly successful approach to the teaching of reading and spelling.

This four day intensive course offers an instructional method that is multi-sensory, structured, code orientated, sequential and explicit. These aspects are strongly recommended for teaching children to read and spell.

This course will provide lesson plans which are clearly structured and easily followed within a systematic, synthetic phonics program.  It teaches all key elements of conceptual understanding, factual knowledge, and the essential skills of blending, segmenting and phoneme manipulation; all of which are necessary to learn to read and spell.

Sounds-Write is developmentally appropriate for beginning readers in Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 within a classroom, and also offers fast and highly effective small group or individual intervention for children at all year levels who have fallen behind in their reading and spelling from Year 3 onwards.

You will also be supplied with the Sounds-Write Manual.
