Sounds~Write: A High Quality Evidence Based Phonics Program 4 Day Workshop

Monday 10 August 2020 9:00AM - Tuesday 18 August 2020 3:30PM

Sounds-Write is an evidence-based phonics program utilising an exciting and highly successful approach to the teaching of reading, spelling and writing.  This four day intensive course offers an instructional method that is structured, cumulative, sequential and explicit; all of which are strongly recommended for teaching children to read and spell. It places emphasis on providing practice that is grounded in physical, concrete experience of the skills and conceptual understanding that students need to assimilate. Sounds-Write is developmentally appropriate for beginning readers in foundation, Year 1 and Year 2, and also offers fast and highly effective intervention for children at all year levels who have fallen behind in their reading and spelling from Year 3 onwards.

* Booking is for all four days: 10th, 11th, 17th & 18th August.
