A program to develop single word decoding and spelling skills for students operating at Stage 1. Games and tasks for targeted small groups and home programs.


  • Single word phonic word attack skills require explicit instruction and repeated practice.
  • Once single word skills are established, they are more likely to transfer across to written work.
  • The program is designed for individuals or small groups of students who require repeated opportunities to consolidate stage 1 spelling and decoding.
  • The stage 1 program is organised into four sections:
    • Target 1: CVC
    • Target 2: CVC with early phonic concepts sh, ch, th, oo, ee, ck
    • Target 3: CCVC and CVCC words
