What will you learn?
What fluency at the word level involves for both reading and writing, and how you can support your students to develop this fluency through your phonics instruction.
Elaine Stanley is an experienced teacher, school leader and literacy coach. She has had extensive experience implementing systematic synthetic phonics in primary school classrooms, and has recently coached disadvantaged schools around Australia.
This resource provides a bank of decodable words and sentences aligned to each phase of the Literacy Hub phonics progression to use as part of instruction or for independent student practice.
The Literacy Hub provides free, online professional learning to support schools through each step of building a systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) approach for reading and spelling. This first topic in the series addresses phonics progressions and phonological awareness.
These example slides show a range of tasks for building fluency. The activities can be used for whole-class or small-group instruction, as well as for independent or paired practice.
View the five videos in this series, which outline the evidence base and key features of a systematic synthetic phonics approach.
