Rethinking the way we teach reading and spelling with Miss Em - the Reading Whisperer,

People who can read often ask why there is such a focus on 'Duck Hands' - 'Spelling with Lines' - and seeing words as made up of Speech Sound Pics' (pictures of speech sounds) They don’t realise that when they read they have instant recall for most (even though in the beginning stages their brains had to first work out the word) - so it's a good idea to show them what their brains still do when presented with unfamiliar words. See second paragraph. The first paragraph shows how amazing brains are WHEN you are a reader- the brain- eyes- info processing is so fast that the eyes scan the text and can read it aloud as if the words weren't scrambled. To do this the student needs to have reached at least the SSP Yellow Level for reading and are therefore able to scan ahead, using their prior knowledge of about 60 phonemes/ graphemes. SSP reading levels relate to using the code in meaningful context - so all text is created using the code they are learning or have learnt plus some helpful (high frequency) words. This also demonstrates why the SSP reading levels relates to brain- eyes- info processing- up until the Yellow level children need to quickly decode, so that they can understand. If you give words with code all over the place before they can read them (as with any whole language based readers eg PM readers) the brain goes back to doing what you will do in the second paragraph. When you read it ALOUD think to yourself- this is what PM readers are doing to the brains of at least 35% of all children. Making it slow down and have to try to decode (if they are also being taught those skills) It's why they have to rely so much of guessing from illustrations- they can't actually decode the words- certainly not quickly and easily, so they can also focus on understanding. Give students PM readers when they are at the SSP Yellow to Blue Level and they will be able to read them- but as a teaching tool for reading PMs are toxic. Em:-) This is easy for readers... ie SSP yellow to blue. icnduo'tbvleieetaht I culodaulacltyuesdtannrdwaht I was rdnaieg.

Aaznmig, huh?Yaeh and I awlyastghhuotslelinpg was ipmorantt! See if yuorfdreins can raedtihs too. This is hard for most fluent decode/ read and also to comprehend. This gallimaufry is multitudinously gargantuan, puissantly capacious and ineffably Junoesque and in consequence of such Protean tribulations and in such psychotic contravention of stereotypical consuetudinary hygiene, there exists the infinitesimal exiguity of a satisfactory resolution to this cataclysmic dilemma.
