Now that your child has established a foundation in decoding words with short and long vowels, it’s time to start building their next layer of reading skills.
Level 2 is made up of 18 lessons that introduce letters that work together (consonant blends / digraphs / double consonants etc) and continue to build on the learner’s knowledge of short and long vowels a, e, i, o, u. Sound variations for the letters g, c, and s are also introduced.
These new letter patterns become easily identifiable with the aid of visual codes. Visual codes that appeared in Level 1, will also appear in Level 2. Visual codes are used temporarily as a learning aid only. The program has been designed so that the visual codes are removed within a matter of days, once the learning has been established.
Short tutorials at the beginning of each lesson give your child the opportunity to learn and also revise new visual codes and letter sounds that will appear in the lessons. A short explanation on each page has been provided so you’ll know exactly what to say to walk your child through this part of the 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.
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.
