Popular SSP Resources
A3 Coding Poster
(write on it, and use with whiteboard) and
2 Packs Spelling Cards
This is a great starter pack for parents. Use with a membership and teach your child to read.
The A3 Coding Poster is used to teach phonemic awareness, 100+ high-frequency graphemes (recognition and formation) and to give children daily opportunities to blend these graphemes in words, and in whole sentences using the 100+ high-frequency words. The graphemes are straight systematically in 4 'Code Levels'.
In class they spend around 90 seconds on each activity, so the class works on the same activity but at their
Code Level and pace. This is called 'spaced repetition'.
To achieve optimum learning the children watch their Code Level video first (around 6 minutes) and then do the coding poster independently. Teachers use a buzzer in class, when children stop an activity, rub off, and start the next!
Also use the SSP Spelling Piano app for ipads.
They also further extend these code level skills using 'code level' decodable readers.
