Can Do Cubes for synthetic phonics

(An introduction by Debbie Hepplewhite)

Can Do Cubes for phonics can be used as a multisensory complement to a full synthetic phonics teaching program such as Jolly Phonics.

This product is based upon:

  • the research and classroom findings on reading instruction, past and present;

  • activities which are used commonly in successful remedial, and class based, synthetic phonics programmes;

  • a wealth of teaching experience of the author and others.

What is the Synthetic Phonics Teaching Approach?

Synthetic phonics teaching is a simple to complex approach where learners are taught the alphabetic code.

Students start by learning a version of the transparent (simple, basic) alphabetic code before being introduced, systematically, to the opaque(complex, extended, advanced) alphabetic code.

The transparent code generally includes one spelling variation for the 44+ smallest, identifiable sounds (phonemes) of speech of the English language. The opaque code includes the 175+ spelling variations of the English writing system for the 44+ sounds of speech.

Students should experience a rich communication, language and literacy curriculum in addition to learning technical knowledge and skills for basic reading, spelling and handwriting
