Representing the phonic and sound structure of words for students aged 5-7 years.
Decoding and spelling is dependent upon phonics and “sounding out” (or phonological awareness) processes. The colour coding process adopted in the charts highlights the focus phonic patterns along with the sound structure contained within the words.
Phonic Charts – Stage 1 contains 18 cards that are recommended for 5-7-year-olds focusing on the following sounds: sh, ch, th, oo (short), oo (long), ee, ck, ing, ay, ar, or, er, ai, oi, oy, all, wh, qu
- The charts can be utilised for the purpose of display or as flash cards.
- Extend phonic knowledge, whilst highlighting the sound structure and the vocabulary nature of the words.
- Writing is supported when students have access to environmental print, which consolidates concepts covered.
- Each set of charts is based directly upon the PLD’s Phonic & sight word sequence
