Learn to use the FREE SSP Monster Sounds app to develop phonemic awareness.
Each Speech Sound Monster is an alternative to a phonetic symbol.
Learn to use SSP Code Mapping so that students more easily understand the mapping of phonemes to graphemes, even if 'sight word heavy' levelled readers (eg F&P or PM) are used. They will then authentically 'benchmark' unseen texts without memorising words, guessing from 'first sound' or illustrations.
SSP training is always planned to ensure that participants are curious, engaged and eager to learn more - just as we teach students to read and spell!
In-service training options for Aussie schools can be booked here
