What are nonsense or pseudo words? 

Pseudo words are nonsense words that have no meaning. These invented words are spelled in a regular or predictable way. For example, the word zop is a pseudo word and makes no sense. However, the word zop has predictable spelling and is pronounced in the same way as regular real words; the z as in zoo, the o as in orange and the p as in panda. The nonsense (or pseudo words) within this eBook are identified as being linked to funny or silly faces.

Why expose beginning readers to nonsense words? 

As beginning readers have never encountered the nonsense words before, they are therefore unable to draw upon their experience (and visual memory). As nonsense words are typically presented in isolation, this means that no sentence context can be drawn upon. To read invented words beginning readers must draw upon their knowledge of how letters (and letter clusters) represent speech sounds. The advantage of presenting pseudo words is that they provide teachers with a means of determining if beginning readers can apply the phonic rules to real genuine words.

Research on nonsense words:

Decoding is established in the literature as a strong predictor of future success in reading. Nonsense words are an ideal way to determine how well the early stages of phonics instruction have been taught and also learned. For the above reasons, pseudo word reading is widely used in research as a measurement of decoding.

Set 3: CCVC & CVCC words features:

  • Decoding is a strong predictor of future reading ability.
  • Multiple lists of real and nonsense words.
  • Fun and engaging task word sets to develop decoding skills.
  • Word lists presented focus upon CCVC (or consonant consonant vowel consonant) words and CVCC (or consonant vowel consonant consonant) words.

This product is mentioned in the Whole School Literacy Strategy on page 18.

    Repeated practice, phonemic awareness and progress check assessments.

    Designed by a Speech Pathologist for use in schools and the home, this program for 5 to 7 year olds focuses on reading, spelling and writing CCVC and CVCC blends. The explicit teaching format incorporates multiple Blends: CCVC and CVCC word reading and spelling tasks. In order for phonic based reading and spelling materials to be effective children must possess adequate phonemic awareness skills. This resource incorporates a significant phonemic awareness element. While this is ideal for the dyslexic and learning difficulties population (who are typically insensitive to the phonemic structure of words and rely on the visual appearance of words) this approach has proven to effectively accelerate early reading and spelling skills with the more mainstream population. Attention to mouth movements involved in producing the sounds in words heightens children’s attention to the phonemic structure and supports the organization of the letter symbols in spelling and the decoding of the symbols in reading. The combination of the attention to the oral, auditory and visual aspects achieves balanced word attack strategies and significantly accelerates the acquisition of the earliest reading and spelling steps. The aim of this resource is to establish the ability to read and spell regular late Stage 1 phonic words. For some students, once this skill is established they then require multiple opportunities to practice this skill (e.g. reading 200 to 300 such words) before these basic words are read automatically (i.e. without sounding out). For students who require more practice and rehearsal, the games based program Stage 1 Single Word Decoding and Spelling Skills is recommended.
