Foundation to Year 2 Teaching Sequence: Phonics & High-Frequency Words

Year Level: Foundation, Year 1 & 2, Years 3 to 6

An evidence-based structured synthetic phonics (SSP) program that integrates the teaching of high frequency words (HFW’s) within the phonic sequence.

Following an extensive literature review recently, PLD upgraded our approach to teaching high-frequency words (HFW) by amalgamating it with our phonic progression. Our unique approach allows children to learn more high-frequency words with less effort by teaching the right words at the right time and in the right way.

For Semester 2, we have developed our approach further by providing a visual progression guide to how these words amalgamate with PLD’s teaching sequence. Available from Foundation to Year 3 onwards, once you have completed the testing, click on the links below to download the corresponding in school or at home High-Frequency Words within SSP Charts based on your student’s ability:
