Pack 7. Learn The Phonic Sounds ar, or, ir, ur and er (Learn To Read With Phonics Pack)
Learn To Read With Phonics Reading Packs are a quick and easy way to teach children to read in just six months.
They are ideal for all ages (from 4 years plus), especially reluctant older readers of 7, 8, 9+, children with learning difficulties and children where English is a foreign language.
The packs are designed to be used one to one or in small groups with a teacher and child or parent/guardian and child learning together.
The packs consist of a structured course that build 44 phonic sounds into the text. As the children read the adventures of a loveable boy called Sam, they can have fun searching for hidden sounds. They will build up 44 sounds in total. This will enable them to read 80% of words in the English language, by breaking them down into sounds or syllables – pl ay ing. Children using phonics in this way progress fast.
A series of stories, The Bouncing Castle and The Famous Cousin From The Country reinforce the complex middle sounds being learnt. By the end of the scheme, the child will be ready to progress to ‘solo’ reading books, such as Roald Dahl’s ‘Georges Marvellous Medicine’ and ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’.
Many of the packs have cut out practice pages for matching words to pictures and phrases to pictures, to fix the sound words in the child’s memory. The simple text and fun colour sketches, appeal to young readers and have helped the authors to teach many, many children to read.
The reading packs may be used in any order, just pick the pack for the sound you require. However, when using the packs for a complete non reader we suggest you start with packs teaching initial sounds (word building with three or four letter words).
Then move on to learning phonic sounds in this order: ch, sh, wh, th, oo, ee, ar, or, ur, ir, er, magic e, ea, oa, ai, ay, oi, oy, oa, short y (as in happy), long y (as in sky), soft c (as in mice), soft g (as in engine), ou, ow, au and aw.
Next, move onto more complex sounds as in, tion, le, el, ough, gue, que, ine, ue, ie, ei, prefixes and suffixes.
How To Use
Each pack introduces a sound.
1) Learn the sound with the child/children
2) Read the sentences or stories several times, encouraging the child/children to talk about the pictures.
3) At the end of the sentences or story, there is a list of words and phrases, which the child can match to the pictures.
Practise each sound several times, until the child is familiar with it.
Guinea Pig Education
GUINEA PIG EDUCATION HOW IT STARTED…
In 1990, Sally, a classroom teacher of thirty years experience, started a private tuition business – teaching children, of all abilities, one to one.
She felt there was insuﬃcient material on the market, to suit the needs of individual pupils and began writing her own schemes of work.
In 2004, these schemes were developed into text books and sold to clients of GPE tuition and local parents.
Over the years the Guinea Pig range has grown considerably. Today, our 75 plus books and 500 plus teaching resources are sold in retail stores, educational establishments and online, both in print format and digitally across the globe. We are absolutely delighted to have been able to encourage and inspire so many children across the world to love learning. It is our absolute honour and privilege.
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT INSPIRING ALL CHILDREN TO LOVE LEARNING.
GUINEA PIG EDUCATION Creative Writing Books
Our creative writing books are designed to help children express their ideas; to make their imagination run wild; and to encourage them to write.
We believe in saturating even the most reluctant writers (whose minds go blank) with ideas and good vocabulary.
Our resources are successful because they employ the same unique strategies that are used in Sally Anne’s one-to-one private lessons.
Working through our books is like have a private tutor at your side, which is why they are so successful at building confidence and motivating students of all ages.
GUINEA PIG EDUCATION Phonic Reading Materials
An eight year old boy, called William, is the reason the Guinea Pig reading scheme exists. He was a very reluctant reader, who had barely made a start in acquiring literacy, but with our scheme he had ﬂuency in nine months.
Our Learn To Read With Phonics reading scheme is a fast, fun way to teach a child to learn to read, in only 8 books. It uses an intensive course of systematic phonics.
It has helped hundreds of struggling readers become ﬂuent in a few months.
