Read Write Inc - Reading

During our Read Write Inc sessions we practise our reading skills by reading ‘Green Words’. These are words that are decodable because they only contain sounds that your child will be able to recognise. 

The children know to sound out or ‘Fred Talk’ each sound whilst pointing underneath the letters, then to blend the sounds to make the word. If your child knows them on sight they can read them without sounding out and this is an important progression in their reading.

In the Read, Write, Inc. scheme ‘red words’ are used to help the children recognise the fact that there are words that are tricky to read because you can not sound them out in the normal way.  Your child needs to be able to read these words on sight.

Below you will find copies of the red words and Green Words relating the to RWI book colour. Please have a look at the words that your child is currently learning. If you are able to support by practicing these this would very much be valued.
