When learning to read it is necessary to see, recognise and differentiate letter shapes and translate them into their corresponding speech sounds.
It is essential to learn how letters relate to various sounds and to identify and segment sounds in spoken words.
“Sounds are Simple” follows the relationship between sounds and letters and sets out activities to ensure that the reader will learn simple spelling-reading patterns and combine these skills with more complex decoding strategies to achieve fluent reading.
The activities are sequenced from very simple basic tasks to more involved and more complex spelling and reading tasks.
The tasks involve circling, colouring or joining the matching words.
Joining jumbled 3 letter words with the correct word, joining words with their pictures, answering yes or no questions...
Some worksheets are easy, some are more involved, however they all teach the child to decode the words and use them in the activities.
