Decoding Skills

James is currently reading at Red 3. For the last year James has been working on his initial sound knowledge to work out words he doesn't know. Now that he has got this skill i need to move him onto making words as well as identifying middle and ending sounds.
I started him on this activity which he was able to do with support. He was able to find the beginning letter independently and i helped him to sound out the end sound by slowing the word down as i repeated it back however he needed much more support for the vowel sounds. James struggles to hear the difference between similar sounds like "i" , "a" and "e" due to his speech impediment. For his reading this term i will focus more on vowels to bridge this gap in his reading and writing.
