ICRWY Reception and Year 1 Training and Support

Book in-house professional development courses with Miss Emma, creator of the SSP (Speech Sound Pics®) Approach, and learn how to use Code Mapping® and Monster Mapping® to get learners excited about mapping phonemes to graphemes. Learn how to 'Duck Hand® (segment) words into the smallest sound units (and check with the IPA) and explore those Speech Sound Pics® (graphemes) on paper! Training is engaging and hands-on, with educators learning in a similar way to the children; a 'less teaching, more learning' approach is taken. Online Training available here. 
Code Mapping® and Monster Mapping® are used to teach students to use decoding and encoding strategies and reach the 'self-teaching phase (Share, 1995) as quickly and easily as possible. We want children to say 'I Can Read Without You!'
A 'speech to print' approach is taken, with an initial focus on oral language and phonemic awareness and 'phonics' so that fluency, comprehension and vocabulary knowledge skills can be developed within a language-rich learning environment.
We also offer ICRWY programmes for EY educators and those supporting students with dyslexia.

Say what you see in phonemes (speech sounds) and your partner has to draw it!

Teachers who choose SSP 'Code Mapping' and 'Monster Mapping' value the 'whole child' approach, with the teaching of reading and spelling centred around 'The Speech Sound Family'. They love the puppets and games...and often dress up with the children! They want children to love to read, and so create language-rich environments for the children, where all feel that they belong.

Miss Emma has a BEd Hons (Worcs College University) MA Special Educational Needs (Nottingham University) and is undertaking a doctorate at the University of Reading, with a focus on early literacy intervention.
She has both UK and AU passports and divides her time between the UK and Australia (COVID restrictions permitting)
At present Miss Emma is the lead presenter for all teacher training workshops and in-house professional development sessions within the UK, while she mentors and trains a new UK team of SSP Code Mapping trainers. 

 

Anyone is welcome to join the public Facebook.com/SpeechSoundPics page and to ask to join her 'Orthographic Mapping' support group on facebook and connect with others who are passionate about ensuring that every child is given the very best opportunity to learn to read and spell, and to become a life-long reader and Code Mapper!

There is an online training area for Reception and Year 1 parents and teachers.

 

Access the 3-hour whole school training course (everyone understanding the IPA and how to map phonemes to graphemes in order to develop exceptional spelling skills) and the 2 hour follow up workshop designed specifically for Reception and Year One Teachers, or anyone with an interest in our I Can Read Without You  (ICRWY) Project '

Although the focus is on the implementation of the core phonics program, and The Phonics Learning Routine Miss Emma also offers bespoke training to meet the needs of your school. You may want to explore 'Cracking Comprehension' strategies, using Code Level (decodable) texts for example. Or Speedy Paired Writing. Please do get in touch and let us know how we can work with you, to make the learning to read and spell stage systematic, scaffolded, differentiated and fun! There are numerous ways to extend the basic Phonics Learning Routine.

Prices depend on your school needs, as discussed with Miss Emma. You can book a school visit @£295 plus VAT (and expenses when an overnight stay is needed) and she will spend the morning with your school meeting Reception and Year 1 teachers, observing practice and working out what is needed during training. You may ask Miss Emma to spend 20 minutes with a currently struggling child while teachers observe (or video the session to watch later) so that you can see the effectiveness of her techniques first-hand. This tends to really help with regards to 'credibility and 'trustworthiness' as teachers know the child (whom Miss Emma knows nothing about) and can see the immediate impact regarding engagement and a shift in learning behaviour.  

 

Your training package is then organised.  

Alternatively please do book the whole day (6 hour) 'Getting Started with SSP Code Mapping' -in-house professional development workshop for your UK staff team with Miss Emma  £1275

Duck Hands® are the foundation for everything relating to decoding and encoding as they ensure we segment words into the smallest sound units! They facilitate phonemic awareness and are also a great assessment tool - as we can SEE how children are segmenting something they are HEARING. 

Miss Emma has set up a private support group for anyone interested in Orthographic Mapping. She shares her unique techniques and strategies to empower others, and SSP Code Mapping teachers are always happy to mentor and share! 
Some of these teachers are also SSP Code Mapping trainers.

A message from 'Miss Emma'

My Grandpa had tea with the Queen at Buckingham Palace as he was awarded a CBE for his great work in education. Love the top hat! I’m in the middle with the trendy pinafore dress:-) My little sister ( in matching dress, of course!) is now a leading scientist and teaches PhD students at Cambridge Uni. She looks so tiny here:-)

I love England and have returned to complete doctoral work at the University of Reading. I did my teacher training at Worcester, and my Masters Degree at the University of Nottingham.

I can't wait to share my passion for SSP Code Mapping with schools in the UK after meeting, training and mentoring thousands of like-minded educators in Australia during the ten years I lived there. I will return, and deliver training there again, when restrictions are lifted!
