Phonics and Morphology Scope and Sequence
SPELD NSW has developed a Phonics and Morphology Scope and Sequence for Reading and Spelling for Kindergarten and Years One and Two. It is also a great tool to use for literacy Intervention planning.
About the SPELD NSW Phonics and Morphology Scope and Sequence
SPELD NSW has developed a Phonics and Morphology Scope and Sequence for Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2. These documents include the Phonic Knowledge, Fluency and Spelling Outcomes and Content from the new NSW Syllabus for English.
The Kindergarten Scope and Sequence has a focus on phonics for reading and spelling. It also includes some basis morphology and high frequency irregular and partially irregular words. This part of the Scope and Sequence covers the Basic Phonics Code and introduces commonly used graphemes from the Extended Code.
The Year One Scope and Sequence has a focus on spelling as well as reading. It addresses phonics from the Extended Phonics Code. This part of the Scope and Sequence incorporates phonics, spelling conventions and morphology in an integrated and systematic manner.
The Year Two Scope and Sequence has a focus on spelling. It uses a phonics framework to structure the spelling instruction and incorporates phonics, spelling choice and morphology and a wide range of vocabulary in an integrated and systematic manner.
SPELD NSW Phonics and Morphology Scope and Sequence also include a planned revision sequence to allow for regular spaced practice.
This Scope and Sequence has been developed with reference to the phonics progression of a range of high quality decodable reader series to allow for the easy use of decodable texts as part of literacy instruction. Please refer to the SPELD NSW Decodable Book Selectors to see how decodable texts can be organised in relation to this and other scope and sequences.
SPELD NSW would like to thank Associate Professor Saskia Kohnen and Dr Danielle Colenbrander from the Macquarie University Reading Clinic and the Macquarie University Centre for Reading for their valuable contribution to the development of this scope and sequence.
