Intervene Early and Ensure Every Child's Reading and Spelling Takes Off
Within the first week of teaching the first 8 phonemes, you can instantly see which children are going to struggle. Why wait to catch them up? Why not intervene early before these problems are too deep set?
"Within two weeks all the kids on the programme have shown great progress but the best thing is they are LOVING it - they refer to it as 'my Power Pack"
Nicky Wake, Castle Primary School, UK
Home learning and In School Support weekly units include: step by step instructions alongside ready to go activities and resources - simply photocopy the units and, without additional training, you have everything you need to give all children the extra support they need!
Watch author and teacher, Rachel Tabram, explain why early intervention is so important and how the Power Pack works:
Tackles difficulties with phoneme knowledge, blending, segmenting, automaticity and fluency with any set of phonemes
Resources are ready-to-go with full instructions so your teaching assistant can get started right away
Uses whole class Synthetic Phonics Toolkit strategies so children are already familiar with games & activities - no wasted time in teaching game objectives and rules
Give synthetic phonics home learning to:
Allow parents to enter into a literacy partnership with the school
Simply put it through the photocopier – no extra time is required from you
Employ the same classroom strategies at home with parent friendly step-by-step instructions
Skill and educate parents too! Included in the Power Pack are: letters for parents explaining how the programme works, a parent's glossary and simple step by step instructions explaining synthetic phonics and the acitvities
"We couldn't even mention the H word [homework] before but now the Power Pack is the first thing he wants to do when he gets home and we struggle to get him to stop"
