With holidays looming, ensure your child holds on to their level of literacy & do daily reading & spelling tasks, as too many students fall back over the long holidays. The WordsWorth Literacy Programme is an ideal teaching tool to help with teaching and maintaining high levels of literacy skills.
Stunned at how few expert or experienced SLT’s, Psychologists, OT’s & Teachers my ‘era’ don’t use social media: any ideas on how to get more onboard to disseminate information and share valuable clinical know how?
A key message from the Facebook Seminar was the need to be able to pivot! We as therapists / teachers need to be able to move from our usual modus operandi to adjust to students individual learning style.
Delighted to be invited by NEPS to present the online WordsWorth Literacy Programme to c. 60 Resource & Learning Support Teachers in the Longford area in Ireland, on 22 May 2012.
After completing The WordsWorth Literacy Programme lots of the younger students achieve their ambition to read all the Harry Potter books…
I find it amazing how quickly students ‘see’ the WordsWorth 9 syllable division rules in words, making reading a much easier task.
Just had a quick look at the results from the WordsWorth / KSP School Project which has now completed. They look extremely good and a full professional analysis is underway. A report will be posted as soon as they are received.
In my opinion, the ability to read and spell ‘pseudowords’ is an essential skill, with the ongoing introduction of technical and medical new words to the English vocabulary e.g. “pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis”!
The WordsWorth Literacy Programme is mentioned in the DAI Spring Newsletter, page 13.
Receiving great feedback from parents now using the on-line version of the Programme. Interestingly, parents who would have previously used the paperbased programme with other children, find this new version much easier to follow. The fact that the videos can be replayed is making the learning process more accessible to all.
