Phonics for Pupils with Special Educational Needs is a complete, structured, multisensory programme for teaching reading and spelling, making it fun and accessible for all. This fantastic seven-part resource offers a refreshingly simple approach to the teaching of phonics, alongside activities to develop auditory and visual perceptual skills. Specifically designed to meet the needs of pupils with special educational needs of any age, the books break down phonics into manageable core elements and provide a huge wealth of resources to support teachers in teaching reading and spelling.
Book 3: Sound by Sound, Part 1 focuses on discovering complex sounds and their relationship with letters and letter combinations. Each chapter explores a key sound (sh/ th/ ng/ ch/ k/ qu/ f/ l/ s) and contains over 40 engaging activities, including: sound exchange, word scramble, spot the spelling, word detective and writing challenge. Thorough guidance is provided on how to deliver each activity, as well a lesson planner template, a handy list of high frequency words and posters for teachers and teaching assistants to use to support learning.
Each book in the series gradually builds on children's understanding of sounds and letters and provides scaffolded support for children to learn about every sound in the English language. Offering tried and tested material which can be photocopied for each use, this is an invaluable resource to simplify phonics teaching for teachers and teaching assistants and provide fun new ways of learning phonics for all children.
This book is accompanied by a companion resource, 'Phonics for Pupils with Complex SEND ', to be used alongside the Phonics for Pupils with Special Educational Needs programme. The activities from Books 1-6 of the programme are adapted to be accessible for non-verbal pupils, including AAC users, and those with physical disabilities.
