Product description

How can teachers unravel the mysteries of written English, teach sound recognition, decoding and letter-sound knowledge? By using this book! Professor John Hattie

Catch Up Your Code identifies and addresses gaps in knowledge of the alphabetic code of English. This knowledge is critical for efficient decoding and spelling. Any gaps impact negatively on reading comprehension and quality writing.

Catch Up Your Code starts with a short assessment to identify gaps in code knowledge, then provides a series of fast, effective 10-minute lessons to close the gaps.

This series supports both remote or face-to-face learning environments.

The lessons in the Catch Up Your Code Teacher’s Book guide students to explore the sounds of English, think about where each sound occurs in a word, and discover the different ways the sound can be written. These lessons, suitable for students from ages 7+ to adults, provide teachers with the tools to close the gaps in code knowledge for all of the sounds of English. This Teacher Book includes:

48 fast-paced lessons that can provide instruction for all the sounds of English OR just the sounds that are least well known

Flexibility in teaching to the whole class, small groups or individuals

Teacher notes that explain the rules for using the code accurately

Appendices with strategies for addressing gaps in phonological awareness and for transferring code knowledge to writing and reading

A glossary of terms, answer key, and phoneme-grapheme chart
