Product Description
Reading Skills Book 3 Focuses mainly on oral blending and segmentation of words with all sounds, consonant blends and digraphs, basic short vowel reading and word endings.
This Reading Skills Programme is designed as a foundation programme that precedes learning to read. Children are enrolled in this programme when they are able to name a wide array of objects from pictures and are able to show that they appreciate how to access the first sound in the words for such pictures.

The course teaches the child to:
• Count single syllable words
• Count poly-syllabic words
• Discriminate between words and syllables in both mono and poly syllabic words.
• Count syllables in both types of words
• Access the onset or first sound in spoken words
• Access the last sound in spoken words
• Access the middle sound in three letter words with a consonant, a vowel and a final consonant (cvc words)
• Access the sounds in higher order words consisting of ccvc and cvcc words
• Full phonological segmenting skills
• Full phonological blending skills using only oral language
• Phonics and how sounds are represented by visual letters
• Recognise how digraphs are represented
• The significance of rhyme
• Talk to a small group on a variety of topics without preparation.
• Speak with confidence
• Ask questions appropriately

This programme is very important because it teaches the child how written text is actually a representation of spoken English. Children learn to talk before they learn to read and should not be taught spelling before they learn how the written code operates. After this programme, children will approach text with an awareness that sound is represented by letters and that by combining or blending the sound-letter sequences words can be decoded easily and without effort. After this programme children are ready to learn to read.
