  • Synthetic Phonics Flip Book – Stage 1

    Developing the relationship between letters, sounds and phonics. 

    This handy Synthetic Phonics Flip Book for Stage 1 resource is intended to provide important synthetic phonic concepts in a practical format which will assist when teaching the whole class or small groups of students. Synthetic phonics is a way of teaching children to read and spell. It has been identified as the most successful approach to establishing early literacy skills. The ‘synthetic’ component relates to the ‘synthesising’ or blending of phonemes (or individual speech sounds) and the ‘phonic’ component relates to written symbols (graphemes) being linked to the individual speech sounds (phonemes). In order to learn how to read, a child links letters to speech sounds and then blends them together to form words. When learning to spell a child separates or segments a word into the individual speech sounds within the word while linking the sounds to letters. It is generally agreed that there are approximately 44 sounds that make up the English language. As there are only 26 letters in the alphabet some letters need to be combined to represent the remaining speech sounds. Features: Designed by speech pathologists for use in schools. The flip book is based upon PLD’s ‘structured synthetic phonics’ (SSP) approach. Early phonic concepts are introduced in a progressive manner. A range of reading and spelling words are provided for each alphabet and phonic sound. Students associate a picture, and keywords with each phonic concept. An effective and engaging way to develop early phonic concepts. The Flip Book contains the following levels: Group 1 – s, a, t, p, i, n (cards with yellow borders) Group 2 – m, r, h, e, d, c (cards with blue borders) Group 3 – f, l, g, o, u, b (cards with green borders) Group 4 – w, j, v, k, z, y, x (cards with red borders) Group 5 – sh, ch, th, oo, ee, ch, wh, qu (cards with purple borders) Group 6 – ar, or, ay, ai, er, oi, oy, ing (cards with orange borders)   This resource is part of the Synthetic Phonics Flip Book range, view the other levels below: Synthetic Phonics Flip Book – Stage 1 & 2 Synthetic Phonics Flip Book – Stage 2, 3 & 4 Synthetic Phonics three Flip Books in a bundle This publication is mentioned within the Whole School Literacy Strategy booklet on pages 18.

    Learning to apply phonic knowledge to extended writing tasks.

    What happens when the correct spelling of test words does not transfer to writing? Students often write words correctly in spelling tests but struggle when applying their new knowledge to written work? As a general rule, students require many opportunities to rehearse their skills in contexts of increasing complexity. Phonic Dictation – Stage 1 focuses on a variety of spelling and phonics concepts. As students complete the dictation tasks, they are faced with the challenge of applying their recently acquired spelling concepts to the rewriting of passages. The presentation of regular phonic dictation sessions enables students to rehearse transferring spelling concepts to their writing. Dictation tasks require minimal preparation but produce significant gains in all areas of literacy. When presented on a regular basis, dictation tasks hold the potential to produce a significant increase in a range of areas. Dictation improves the following skills in students: listening auditory memory handwriting language spelling Most importantly, dictation assists in the translation of spelling list words to students’ self-generated writing. The short presentation formats outline dictation only, the extended formats provide reading, editing and writing tasks. Phonic Dictation – Stage 1 focuses on: Alphabet VC and CVC words. Phonic concepts – sh/ ch/th/oo/ee/ck to CVC words. Blends CCVC and CVCC words. Phonic concepts – ar/or/ ay/ai/oy/oi/er/ing.
