We are teaching children to map phonemes to graphemes (in line with the Science of Reading)
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 involves implicit learning.
