Synthetic phonics is a way of teaching children to read and spell. It has been identified as the most successful approach of establishing early literacy skills. The ‘synthetic’ component relates to the ‘synthesising’ or blending of
phonemes (or individual speech sounds) and the ‘phonic’ component relates to written symbols (graphemes) being linked to the individual speech sounds (phonemes).
- When learning to read a child links letters to speech sounds and then blends them together to form words.
- When learning to spell a child separates or segments a word into the individual speech sounds within the word while linking the sounds to letters.
Stage 2 Decoding and Spelling Games is a program to develop single word decoding and spelling skills for students operating at Stage 2.
- Designed by a Speech Pathologist, this game-based approach focuses on helping children to decode and spell single words.
- This program revises early phonic concepts before stage 2 phonic concepts are applied to decoding and spelling tasks.
- Ideal for small group and individual programs the game based approach provides multiple opportunities for students to learn and rehearse their word attack “sound-out as you spell and decode” skills.
- Remember students require consistently accurate single word skills before they are able to transfer their skills across to written tasks.
Stage 2 Synthetic Phonics is a handy flip book resource that is intended to provide important synthetic phonic concepts in a practical format which will assist when teaching the whole class or small groups of students.
