Spelling workshop powerpoint

  1. 1. Sacred Heart Spelling WorkshopPhonemic Awareness Program 22nd March 2012
  2. 2. Why? NAPLAN results – Whole school approach needed Feedback and observations from Emma and Cassie – referrals Observations and concerns from upper primary teachers
  3. 3. Background information about spelling Importance of Oral Language development in pre school years “Reading and writing float on a sea of talk” James Britton Spelling is a strategy for writing When we spell we draw on our knowledge of phonics and phonemic awareness
  4. 4. Phonics: Refers to the relationships between letters and sounds, or between letter patterns and sound patterns (Emmitt & Hornsby, 1996).Phonemic Awareness: Relates specifically to the working knowledge of the individual phonemes that form the words of Australian English. Incorporates the ability to segment words into their component sounds.
  5. 5. Strategies used to spell Sound out the phonemes Memorisation Looks right Sounds right – as it articulates Syllables Analogy Mnemonics Rule or pattern Context Etymology- origin of words Dictionary/ thesaurus/ resource /ask a friend
  6. 6. Spelling KnowledgeStrategiesPhonemic- segmenting sounds / Visual – how words lookarticulating Morphemic – meaning Etymological – origin ofbased words
  7. 7. Sound Waves Uses a sound to letter strategy – acknowledges sounds can be represented in different ways Example – f, ff, ph Firstly focus on the basic units of sound and then the letters that represent them Segmenting for writing – s/o/ck/s Blending for reading
  8. 8. Sound Waves The idea is that children will be better equipped to ‘have a go’ at spelling because they will be aware of the many different options for each sound as presented on the Sound Waves charts. Kindergarten - Jolly Phonics Program which teaches the most common sounds and options before beginning Sound Waves in Year 1
  9. 9. How we use Sound Waves Whole school scope and sequence – focus sound of the week Lessons over the week • Introduce sound and brainstorm • Singing/chant • Large posters with sounds and options – reading and writing • Segmenting list words – word strips Year 1 Blog - http://year1od.blogspot.com.au/ Year 5 online - ....Yr 5Year 5Yr 5 2012LiteracyLiteracySpellingUnit 8 f ff phlist words segmenting.pdf
