Decoding Strategy:

The purpose of this book is for students to discover that the words we say aremade up of a string of sounds and that by blending sounds together, they canpronounce words.The text in this book is likely to be ‘read’ from memory. Most
words are high-frequency words and can be used to teach sight-word recognitionand one-to-one matching, rather than decoding strategies. Students search eachpage for things that begin with a particular sound, not letter. For example, the ‘k’ page includes kitten and calendar – same sound, different letters to write it.

You will also see chocolate on this page, where the c does not sound like ‘k’. The words in the teaching posters can be used to teach students to blend sounds together to make words. Students who have some knowledge that sounds can be written with letters can learn to link letters to sounds in the decodable words and to combine the sounds to make words, (‘T’, ‘i’, ‘m’ ‘s’, ‘d’ ‘i’ ‘d’, ‘h’ ‘u’ ‘n’ ‘t’ etc.)
