Sound Waves Spelling is a systematic word study program for your whole school.
The Sound Waves Spelling Student Book Foundation allows students to practise and apply the knowledge and skills taught in lessons. Just like the two phases of teaching conducted in the Foundation year, the student book is divided into two phases.
Phase 1: Exploring Sounds focuses on equipping students with sound-based skills required to begin reading and spelling in the next phase of the program. Phase 1 student book pages include a phonemic awareness activity and a pre-writing activity.
Phase 2: Discovering Graphemes focuses on systematically and explicitly teaching students phoneme–grapheme relationships so that they can begin reading and spelling. Phase 2 student book pages include Focus Words, phonemic awareness activities and phonics activities.
