PLD’s Structured Synthetic Phonics Teaching Overview

PLD’s Structured Synthetic Phonics Teaching Overview

PLD’s SSP program is an Australian evidence-based whole-school offering that is aligned with the Science of Reading.  The PLD teaching sequence commences with initial (simple) code and gradually introduces extended code.  All of the PLD programs are supported by downloadable teaching sequences and companion screening and tracking manuals for each primary school year level; Early Years, Foundation, Year 1 & 2 and Year 3, 4, 5 & 6.

SSP Overviews of Initial to Extended Code

The overview below details PLD’s SSP sequence from single letter phoneme-grapheme relationships and digraphs through to the introduction of alternative spellings in the extended code.  Along with teaching the phoneme-grapheme relationships in isolation, it is critical that opportunities to apply this knowledge to extended reading and writing (dictation) tasks are also provided. The PLD SSP phonic teaching sequence also underpins the presentation of High-Frequency Words (HFW’s).
