I launched the Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach in Australia around a decade ago. 

I can't launch it here in the UK because it is not 'synthetic phonics' and I include activities to develop GSF (an important bridging process) etc I want the children to use other cues eg vocabulary knowledge, context, to figure out words with unfamiliar GPCs. I have included an example below.  See Speech Sound Detective - this prompts the children to figure out the word and then 'track back' ie so what is the new grapheme?

The Active View of Reading

In Australia I wanted children to practice their Code Level graphemes within books (so more realistic) and so used to go through the phonics books available, and I would check all graphemes and organise them for teachers. 

Contact Miss Emma about Code Level Readers, to practice blending commonly used Grapheme to Phoneme Correspondences (GPCs).
