Start these readers when children are reading at the SSP Yellow Code Level
Data submitted by hundreds of teachers confirm that when learning in this way, using the Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach - Visual and Linguistic Phonics, Snap and Crack (Cracking Comprehension) Speedy Sight Words, Speedy Six Spelling. They are able to read (decode with comprehension) without relying on the 'three cueing' system. They know enough of the alphabetic code, and the phoneme-grapheme mapping combinations to start the 1,2,3 and Away readers (or F&P type levelled readers) when they are reading Yellow (phonics) Code Level texts. Miss Emma's approach and exposure to a wider range of texts (with the skills to decode and comprehend them) enables more learners to reach the 'self-teaching phase earlier (generally before Grade 2)
No-one else in the world,l as far as we know, has established this correlation, and the over-lap from 'phonics' to 'levelled' readers, and how it positively impacts on the exploration of 'real' (learner choice) reading and increased vocabulary knowledge. Some children need very exposure to 'decodable readers' and yet there is a political argument that only 'decodable texts' be used in their early stages of learning to read - even though many do not realise that the term 'decodable' relates to the learner rather than the book. Any text is 'decodable' if you know that code. Individual differences must be recognised (which means that teachers need to understand the science of thinking and learning in this regard)
Note that we stop at PM 25 or equivalent when at this stage in Reception as the content is not generally appropriate.
