Matching speech sounds to Sound Pics (graphemes) every day! By putting the 'phonetic symbols for kids' (the Speech Sound Monsters) there, the phoneme is not only clear, and we know which sound they are hearing, but it makes it easier when those letters don't represent those phonemes later on.
We are 'preparing them' to understand the 'complex code' (that letters are used to represent speech sounds eg /s/ in the words sip, is and sugar
and speech sounds can be represented by multiple speech sounds. They are exposed to these concepts in a scaffolded manner, using the 4 Code Levels and by exploring words that are relevant and meaningful to the child at that time (eg their name)
Hard copy or online Code Level readers enable children to blend the target graphemes
It is important that children practise blending the target phonemes in 'Code Level' texts and start using high-frequency words. This is a highly structured, scaffolded introduction to the alphabetic code.
Although we have SSP Code Mapping letter formation resources Miss Emma loves the RWI phrases, and has used them within her early literacy intervention sessions. See below - Queensland - 2012. She includes the packs in class packs. her stance on this is - why not get more sales for RWI is she loves the resources for letter formation?
