Level 1 is where it all starts, with 19 lessons dedicated to building a strong reading foundation.
Your child will learn to read words with short and long vowel sounds (a, e, i, o, u). We introduce them to their first visual codes, providing brief tutorials at the beginning of each lesson for learning and reviewing new codes and letter sounds.
Deciphering vowel sounds in early reading, is the focus here.
We understand that repetition is key for children facing reading difficulties, ensuring they grasp these essential elements for reading success.
Each lesson focuses on a single vowel sound only. Repetition of a single vowel sound carried throughout a session, helps the student consolidate the learning and reduces the load on the working memory.
Short bursts of repeated sound patterns within a lesson, practised over consecutive days, make it easier for the learner to grasp information, and ultimately, process it to their long-term memory.
The visual code becomes the identifying mark that allows the learner to ‘activate’ the letters with ease and confidence. Transforming the very abstract nature of learning to read into a more trusted and concrete experience for the learner.
Each lesson offers a similar pattern of learning and providing a familiar style and layout.
