Setting the Foundation

The Foundation Level is the starting point of The Reading Switch Programs, comprising six short levels designed to lay a solid reading foundation for your child.

What to Expect:
Your child will delve into reading words with short and long vowel sounds (a, e, i, o, u). We introduce them to their initial visual codes, with brief tutorials at the start of each lesson to help them learn and review new codes and letter sounds. The focus here is on deciphering vowel sounds in early reading.

Repetition and Mastery:
Understanding that repetition is crucial, especially for children with reading difficulties, we ensure they grasp these foundational elements thoroughly for reading success.

Program Highlights:

  • Video Tutorials:
    These videos introduce key learning content, aiding children’s comprehension of new concepts with engaging and straight forward explanations.

  • Parent Guide Videos: Our program includes support for parents and guardians, guiding them through each level with valuable tips and strategies to enhance their child’s learning journey.

  • Sight Word Challenge: Mastery of sight words is crucial to successful reading. Our program incorporates a Sight Word Challenge to help children master these essential words, further enhancing their reading skills.

Building Reading Confidence: The Foundation Program is meticulously designed to build a strong reading base, equipping your child with the confidence and skills essential for future reading success.
One Vowel Sound per Lesson

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.

Extra Processing Time

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.

New Visual Codes introduced at a gradual pace

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.

Familiar style and layout

Each lesson offers a similar pattern of learning and providing a familiar style and layout.
