Teachers’ Notes The Essential Phonics series is designed for use with students working at middle primary levels and for older children that struggle with spelling and reading basics. The activities are designed to help children identify and distinguish the many combinations of consonant sounds (graphs, digraphs and trigraphs) that make up the English language. It contains a range of concrete worksheets and review sheets that will aid children in their spelling and reading. This book can be used on its own or in conjunction with other existing phonic programs.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

This book can be used by teachers, parents and/or tutors, and in a variety of ways:

Teac he r

There is no set order that needs to be followed. You may choose to work through this book from the beginning to the end in the alphabetical phonic order as it is set out, or select specific sounds groups that the children are experiencing difficulty with.

Which ever way you choose to use the activities, the book will prove to be an asset not only to you, but to the students completing the sheets.

Direct Teaching 1. Establish the sound that is made by the phonemes in the group you are working with, i.e.

“ch “ as in chart

“tch”

as in watch

ch tch

2. Before commencing the sheet, you may like to conduct a word brainstorm on the board. Students think of as many words as they can that contain the sound you are studying.

11.Correct each section as you go along, calling on different students to read their answer or parts of the worksheet. 12.When a set of phoneme sheets are completed, the children can then complete the review sheet that accompanies each of the phoneme groups.

Some Review Sheets can be worked on without too much assistance, but others will need the direct teaching method to be used. Page 6
