Resources for Sarah - SSP Green Level

  1. 1. The whole class starts on the Green Level - however Prep screening, andability noted during activities, will show which are likely to be movingfaster than others.Each child can be working at a different level. So you might start with awhole class activity, but then have separate activities for each level. TAswould be used to help move children from green as quickly as that child isable. They will see the skills children are struggling with, and cater for this(eg blending, phonemic awareness...)Folders are important as theyenable parents to support this explicitteaching at home, and enable anyonehelping in the classroom to help eachchild, with no prior knowledge of that child.
  2. 2. Order for Explicit Teaching of the Phonemes(Speech Sound Pics) within the SSP ApproachRWI phonics flashcards used to teach and reinforcethe sound pics – approx $12 per packChildren have their sound pics and sound pic words in SSP folders that can go homeeach night, with phonics readers. Order these cards from
  3. 3. Organisation• Children should know the level they are on. Anyone with a fewminutes to spare can either ask the child to bring their folder, oryou need 4 boxes in the classroom – Green, Purple, Yellow, Blue –to work with them.In each box have the appropriate sound pics, sound pic words(words created using only their sound pics) helpful words,sentences using only those helpful words and sound pics, readersthat only have those sound pics, RWI cards for letter formationprompts and for blending practice after the Green Level.Having these boxes make Speedy SSP Sessions far easier.Just grab a box and find 4 or 5 children at the same level for a 10 –15 minute Speedy SSP Session whenever possible!
  4. 4. Decodable readershelp to scaffold learningIf you order here please mark on the order form ‘referred by Read Australia’ and let me This allows me to get some free books myself, to share.
  5. 5. SSP with C2C• Even though C2C asks you toteach the phonemes in ajumbled order (and doesn’tallow for differentiation) youcan use the free whiteboardlessons, created to teach themandated phonemes usingthe SSP Approach.This also means that you caneasily see where thesephonemes are located, withinthe SSP Levels, and take outthe related RWI cards andreaders.
  6. 6. ___ ____ ____ _____ ______ _________ ____ ____ _____If the children are ready,give more complex wordsto say, count the speech soundsand draw the lines eg- a pair of brown shoes_____ ____ ______ ___ ___ ___ ____ ____ _______ ____ ____ _____ ____Speech SoundListening Time !
  7. 7. Counting ‘Sound Pics™’If one or more ‘sounds’when sitting together donot make a different soundthen this is not a ‘sound pic’.‘s’ is a sound pic ‘h’ is a sound pic ‘sh’ is a soundpict is a sound pic ‘r’ is a sound pic ‘’tr’ is NOT asound pic.___ ____ _______ ____1 2 3 4
  8. 8. Point to a word, and ask the children to work out the sound pic for aspeech sound in that word. When ready, the children are just askedto find sound pics for certain speech sounds because they can workout the words themselves. Record on white boards.‘Super’ - find the ‘oooo’ sound pic (u)‘Juice’ – find the‘oooo’ sound pic(ui)‘Grain waves’ – can you find 2 soundpics for the ‘ay’ speech sound
  9. 9. If a child is really struggling to hear the speechsounds then show them pictures, or objects,using only green level speech sounds____ _____ _____ _____
  10. 10. And finally….close your eyes andvisualise !Teacher finishes off by asking thechildren to close their eyes and visualisea sound pic for ….(depends on level)She then holds up a sound pic for thatspeech sound. Is this what you could see?What else could it have looked like? (showcloud for that speech sound)So as children progress through they realise that the picture may be different….whichis half the fun ! So the teacher may ask them to close their eyes and visualise a sound picfor ‘sss’ (for example) and then ask them to think of ALL of the sound pics they can ‘see’ intheir minds. Keep your eyes closed and choose one – I wonder if it is the one I am holding!Open eyes- see the sound pic- quick look at all others.When ready, also ask then to visual a whole word- then show it to them

  37. 37. Children need to practice forming the 26 letters of the alphabet in Prep regardless of level– please use the phrase and character cards daily as this helps develop symbol imagery etcYou may practice a – f on Monday, g – l on Tuesday etc.You can call them by their name if you wish- talking about the fact that these have a name -however stressing that this is just a label. What matters most , to shape reading and spellingbrain, is the speech sound to sound pic link.
