The Struggling Older Reader ONLiNE

The latest addition to our ONLiNE courses!
Every middle and upper primary school classroom has them...those students who get stuck on decoding at around the 7-8 year reading level.
We show you how to get them over the decoding hump with 'SevenPlus',  a 8-10 week intervention, followed by 'The 5 Bits', a very important transition back into a normal guided reading routine.
SOR ONLiNE includes $80 worth of teaching resources - assessment procedures to identify students, StoryBytes and InfoBytes especially formatted for SevenPlus and the SevenPlus Manual.

SharpPhonics ONLiNE

This is the result of a collaboration with New Zealand based Yolanda Soryl Literacy. We have taken essential parts of her approach to teaching phonics (her Stage 2, initial sounds and Stage 4, CVC words) and combined them with our step by step, 'simple' approach to training. Perfect 15 minute routines for junior teachers and teachers with little or no experience with phonics.

SharpReading ONLiNE Stages 4-5

The idea behind our developmental progression is to develop mastery at one level before embarking on the next level of difficulty. Stage 4 looks at more sophisticated 'Constructing Meaning' strategies before moving on to Stage 5, 'Critical Thinking' or Big Picture strategies.
