Fluency at letter–sound correspondence level slide outlines

1. Fluency at letter–sound correspondence level

Extract from a Literacy Hub professional learning webinar.

2. Supporting fluency development – letter-sound level

Letters plus sounds equals letter–sound correspondence

3. Letter-sound correspondence fluency

[Image: screenshot shows six phonemes and their sounds from Phase 1 of the Literacy Hub’s phonics progression: s, /s/, a, /a/, t, /t/, p, /p/, i, /i/, n, /n/.]

Symbol to sound leads to [arrow] decoding (reading)

Sound to symbol leads to [arrow] encoding (spelling)

Plus letter formation (handwriting skills)

4. Letter-sound fluency

Explicit direct instruction [Image: Screenshots of two Literacy Hub phonics instruction slides: the first says: ‘I do… Today we are learning the letter s. The sound that s makes is /s/.’ The slide then shows three large letters ‘s’. The first shows a green dot at the starting point for forming/writing the letter and a red dot at the exit point for finishing forming/writing the letter. The second slide is the same except it says: We do…, indicating this is where the students are involved in the process.]

Daily review [Image: Screenshots of three Literacy Hub slides. The first says: What sound? s. The second says: What sound? p. The third says: What sound? t.]

Independent practice [Image: Screenshots of two Literacy Hub slides, showing practice tasks for students. The first shows six outlines of the letter s, indicating students fill these in to practise letter formation. The second shows outlines of the six phonemes of Phase 1 of the Literacy Hub’s phonics progression: s, a, t, p, i, n.]
