Our most used resource. We have to hide it at lunch time! Barbara Raby TRUGS has been a great success at our Infant School this term! I’ve been using it with different levelled reading groups so all children can be involved! Caroline Aylward KS1 Leader The fun and laughter that was generated was just amazing – learning through fun – great. Sue Bailes
It is a very enjoyable way to give them the over learning experience they need. The pupils love playing them and don’t seem to realise they are reinforcing the patterns we have just learnt. Diana Rabot WOW I was blown away. I work with secondary pupils with reading ages of 6 and below. You have saved the day. Amanda Tweedale
Once you start using trugs, you’re hooked... take their word for it
The Training and the Manual
Each stage has a simple and effective ‘Explanation Card’ to give an overview of the phonics being taught in schools.
Practise Reinforce and Consolidate
Each stage has three decodable card games called ‘Get it, ‘Match it’ and ‘Take it’. Play the games in order to reinforce the systematic synthetic phonics methods being taught in school. Continual reading of words with a mixture of laughter and fun with the result of improved reading.
Language Extension and High Frequency Words (school trugs boxes only) The decodable card game; ‘Use it’, gives the opportunity to practise high frequency words slowly and systematically throughout the resource. The game enables literacy development for practice with handwriting, spelling, sentence construction as well as vocabulary extension.
Monitor and Track Pupil Progress (school trugs boxes only) Each school trugs box contains material to assess and track a pupil’s progress. There are two corresponding decodable stories at each of the Stages. One assesses spelling and handwriting and one assesses reading progress. This gives diagnostic information/fluency score/percentage accuracy for the teacher to evaluate and informs for future action.
