The purpose of this document is to provide an implementation outline to assist schools in scheduling the PLD programs within a broad school-based strategy. When
Language Literacy LinkA information sheet explaining the importance of targeting BOTH language based literacy (or oral language skills) and print based literacy skills (i.e. alphabetic, phonic, spelling and decoding ability) for the development of interpretative reading and writing skills.
Too often parents and educators associate early literacy success with alphabetic and sight word knowledge. A little later on in a child’s development literacy is
Ages and Stages of Literacy Development – Ages 3 – 12A fact sheet which identifies age related milestones for literacy development in children from 3 years of age. Included are decoding and spelling skill checklists for Stage 1 (or Year 1) through to Stage 5 (or Year 5).
Many parents wonder if their child’s reading skills are developing at the normal rate. While there are individual differences, there is a general progression of
Key Areas That Maximise Academic AchievementPLD advocates that a child is more likely to reach their full academic potential when three key areas are simultaneously developed. The information sheet summarises the three key areas: 1) Literacy (Spelling and Decoding) 2) Movement and Motor 3) Oral Language
What is Literacy/Spelling and Decoding? Spelling and decoding or “word attack” skills are derived from: Phonological awareness or ‘sounding out ability’ Alphabet knowledge – and
Phonic Charts – Stage 4 - eBook
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 4 focus on the following: ‘a’ as ‘ar’, ‘a’ as ‘o’, ‘c’ as ‘s’, ‘ch’ as ‘k’, ‘g’ as ‘j’, ‘o’ as ‘u’, ‘or’, ‘s’ & ‘ss’ as ‘sh’, ‘y’ as ‘i’, -age, ‘ear’ as ‘er’, use, ‘au’ & ‘augh’ as ‘or’, ‘ough’ as ‘or’, ‘si’ as ‘zh’, ‘ci’ as ‘sh’, -ain, ‘i-e’ as ‘ee’, ‘our’ as ‘schwa er’, ‘ou’ as ‘u’, ‘tu’ as ‘ch’, ‘ie’ as ‘ee’, ‘eigh’ as ‘ay’, silent t, silent c, silent w, ‘gu’ as ‘g’, ‘ss’ & ‘si’ as ‘sh’, ‘e’ as ‘zh’, ‘s’ as ‘zh’, ‘e’ as ‘i’, ‘au’ as ‘o’, ‘ei’ as ‘ee’, ‘u’ as ‘long oo’, ‘al’ as ‘ar’, ‘ar’ as ‘schwa er’.
- 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.

What is a sound wall display?
A sound wall is an interactive display of phonic concepts and words that is organised by and/or emphasises individual sounds (phonemes). Commonly there is one wall for consonants and one for vowels.
Sound walls focus on the formation of phonemes which gives young students a structure that helps them understand the foundation of language and written literacy. As we know from current research about the science of reading, children learn to read through the application of orthographic mapping, a speech-to-print process where letters are mapped to known speech sounds. Teachers need to harness this modern understanding by using sound wall displays as a teaching and learning tool in their classrooms to support the process of learning to read and spell.
