SSP students map sentences, not just words.

Info for parents about 'sight words' (eg SoR research findings) here

We are teaching children to map phonemes to graphemes

Type sight words to see them orthographically mapped!

The ground-breaking Orthographic Mapping Tool!

Word Mapping fun!

Type any words, and copy
the orthographically mapped words into a document and use to learn 'sight words'!

The Black/ Grey Colour Coded Words is a unique technique designed by Emma Hartnell-Baker to show learners the graphemes used to represent speech sounds in words. 
It is just one of the ground-breaking tools and activities introduced to Aussie teachers using the Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach, as a way to ensure that all learners reach the 'self-teaching' phase as early as possible. They reduce the time spent on 'explicit phonics' instruction, facilitating implicit learning more easily. Most of the 'learning to read' journey will be via implicit learning.
