DIYRSP2-DIY READERS SUPPORT PACK-FOR PARENTS AND T
The DIY Readers’ Support Pack for parents has been developed by Dyslexia Action with parents in mind. However, it will prove a very useful resource for teaching assistants. It takes into account extensive research evidence about the best way to support children who struggle from the very beginning to ‘catching on’ with reading. The pack offers a balanced approach to learning to read:
- early skills training – a series of structured exercises to establish sound to letter links and early sound blending
- reading activities – a range of activities for practicing and extending reading skills using books from home and school
Suitable for children who are beginning to learn to read and those who need additional help.
The pack comes complete with a 52-page booklet containing a series of carefully prepared timed exercises and activities together with guidance for parents and/or carers. Also included are a 25 minute explanation film on DVD, 144 (64 x 51mm) cards made up of a Picture Alphabet card pack (26 cards), a Lower Case Alphabet card pack (26 cards), an Upper Case Alphabet card pack (26 cards), a Vowel card pack (6 cards), Days of the Week card pack (7 cards), Months of the Year card pack (12 cards) and Short Word Endings card pack (41 cards), and a stopwatch.
