The RTP Kit provides teachers with all necessary materials and instructions to take struggling readers from Year 2 to adults through a series of scaffolded, systematic reading lessons on a one-to-one basis.
The lessons are divided into three components, targeting the key areas required for successful literacy development: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. There is a strong emphasis on phonics in the Word Attack Skills component, working on accuracy, fluency and spelling. This is complemented by instruction in Sight Word recognition to allow students to access text quickly. The Reinforced Reading component provides opportunities to work on vocabulary and comprehension.
The Kit includes a Word Attack Skills Manual, a Word Attack Skills Recording Booklet
, a Sight Words Manual, a Sight Words Recording Booklet
, Sound Prompt Cards and Sight Word Cards. Please note that recording booklets are consumable items which must be re-purchased for each student entering the program.
Reading Tutor Program is available for purchase by schools only, and can only be used for non-commercial purposes.
