How do the PLD Early Reading Profiles link to the phonics and high frequency words teaching sequence and book sets?

Year Level: Foundation, Year 1 & 2

The Early Reading Profile Screens reflect two areas of early reading:

  • Accuracy (or the student’s ability to ‘crack the code’ and verbalise the words).
  • Automaticity (or the student’s ability to read the word as a full word and in a manner that is efficient and automatic).

Early readers typically decode the majority of phonics-based words. As their skills develop they begin to chunk (e.g. onset and rime or whole-word reading). As the words become more difficult, students typically engage in decoding as required.

Accuracy and fluency is the aim. Typically accuracy at any level is the initial goal and then later fluency becomes the more relevant goal. Both skills are essential to becoming a skilled reader.
