(senior phase educator-private school)

This is an unorthodox and fantastic way of showing how a child can start his first decoding of words in just 9 lessons. I truly believe that every teacher ought to be equipped with the methods outlined in order to prevent common confusion in a child’s early development of phonics and reading. The workshop was a dynamic presentation which outlined how a teacher can actually cater for different ability levels at the same time. It is also a valuable tool in so far as slow learners are concerned, especially in the intermediate phase where some children may be ignored because the teachers are not equipped to deal with these cases.
