Listing Detail Tabs

Early Words is a programme of one-on-one systematic fun five minute word-focused lessons. During the five minute lesson, the child is taught, or retaught, a high frequency word (such as 'is' or 'the') at both word and sentence level. The emphasis is on accuracy and fluency.

Cute pictures are provided so that the child can read every word on the page. Children love the feeling of success in being able to read a whole page in the very first lesson.

The programme is fun and has been taught by parents and teachers around the world. It can be started from the age of 4 and taught as a way to prepare children for reading when they start school or taught once they begin school to give them a boost. This resource is ideal for parents and home educators or teachers working with children at the early stages of learning to read.

To see what the lesson looks like, watch the 5 minute video on the Yolanda Soryl channel on YouTube.

Teachers report that children who have undertaken the Early Words programme are more likely to be focused on and understand many conventions of print, have better self monitoring behaviour and work with more fluency when compared with children who have not had the programme.

The Early Words book which teaches the programme has all the worksheets, probes, lesson dvd and other supplementary resources needed to teach the programme (278 pages).

You'll also need some word cards which can be photocopied from the book onto card or make your own writing the words by hand.
