PLD’s Synthetic Phonics and High Frequency Words Teaching Sequence
An evidence-based structured synthetic phonics (SSP) program that integrates the teaching of high frequency words (HFW’s) within the phonic sequence.
Recently, following an extensive literature review, 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+, 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:

Decoding and Spelling Games – Stage 1From $57.00$57.00 incl. GST
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.
Over time children become more efficient in a visual and an auditory sense. For example, rather than decoding the word ‘teeth’ in three parts the word may be decoded in two parts (e.g. t-eeth or tee-th). Decoding and spelling games for ages 5 to 7 is designed to provide further decoding practice to help students establish automatic word recognition. Single word spelling involves three primary core base skills: Auditory skills Visual skills Fine motor skills Once this spelling process has been rehearsed the students can typically spell the word automatically and often through the application of letter names ‘c-h-a-i-n’. Students will typically read better than they will spell. This is because the recognition of the words (i.e. reading) is typically much easier than the reproduction of the letter sound correspondences to formulate the words. Features: 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 in four sections: Target 1: CVC Target 2: CVC with early phonic concepts sh, ch, th, oo, ee, ck Target 3: CCVC and CVCC words Target 4: Phonic concepts such as ar, or, er, ai, oi The game-based activities provide multiple opportunities to rehearse word attack skills at a reading and spelling level.
