PRS Student Guide

PRACTICE READING & SPEAKING  – STUDENT GUIDE

The Practice Reading and Speaking Student Guide eBook contains just the Phonics Course  WITHOUT the teaching notes and assessments. It includes an introduction and a single page explanation of how the course works.

Included in the PRS Student Guide eBook is the Progress Record which is an index of the complete course. This page allows students to keep track of what they have learned so far and what is left to learn in order to become a fluent reader.  Additionally, the ‘Self-Correction Bookmark’ has been included to help the student remember their options when attempting to guess unknown words.

If every family with children (who as yet cannot read fluently) owned their own copy of the PRS Student Guide, parents would be able to help their child practice reading in a more structured and phoneme targeted way. New parents can be given a link to a phoneme pronunciation online video so that they can refine their own knowledge of phonics.

If you are a teacher and would like all of your students to have their own copy of the PRS student guide, email the website for a multiple copy discount at a reduced price. (You will be sent a voucher code.) If you wish, this code could be given to parents so that they can purchase the Student Guide independently .

TEACHERS – HOW TO MAKE BEST USE OF THE STUDENT GUIDE

Test each child using the assessments in the full course to determine which module they need to begin at. Set the module as reading practice for their own personal homework. When they tell you they can now read the words in that module, re-test with the module assessment. If the child is now fluent with the phoneme/graphemes taught in the module, they can move on to the next module. Parents, teaching assistants, or fluent readers in the school can help children to accelerate their reading progress.  You could keep a class record of which module each pupil is on. Children will then be motivated to reach the next level. Keeping a precise phonic record in this way, helps you keep track of what the student finds difficult.

For a complete suite of eBooks for teaching adults to read, why not buy all three eBooks: The Practice Reading & Speaking Phonics Course, the Student Guide and the Phonic Stories eBook.
