The Sound Phonics Teacher's Guide helps you to use all the Sound Phonics materials effectively in your classroom. The adult-led activities are designed to be carried out in groups or pairs, supported by materials in the accompanying Teacher's Resource Book. Teaching notes help you to plan phonics sessions around the Sound Phonics activity books and contain: practical, multi-sensory activities to introduce and reinforce phonic knowledge; games to practise phonic skills in a stimulating context; ways to apply phonic learning in reading, writing and in other areas of learning; 'little and often' activities to revise recognition and recall of known graphemes. The assessment guidance includes 'Observe and record' notes to help you to manage assessment in Phase One, as well as detailed information on carrying out the assessments in the activity books for Phases Two to Six. Further resources are available as free downloads from the Schofield & Sims website. These materials are updated as necessary to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum.
