Workbook D is the fourth of a series of literacy workbooks designed by psychologists and specialist teachers to help your child progress quickly.
Workbook D is ideal for learners who have completed Workbook C or have a spelling level of around 6 ½-7 years. Strong emphasis on early letter-sound knowledge, sight vocabulary, phonological skills and handwriting.
The StepsWeb workbook series is an ideal resource for teachers, tutors, home-schoolers or parents wanting to support their children’s learning. The series provides a logical, structured literacy progression right through the school years. Exercises practice the core skills and knowledge needed for both reading and spelling. Every word is seen and used in context. Evidence from schools and specialist tutors has shown that learners show as much gain in vocabulary and comprehension as they do with reading and spelling.
The workbooks are ideally reinforced by the StepsWeb online literacy program, which provides automatic analysis of errors and creates individualized reinforcement. Learners are placed on the right level according to literacy level, not age or curriculum level. This means that every learner can work at his/her own level and speed, which enables struggling learners to quickly catch up to where they should be. If you’re not sure of your learner’s level, you can sign up for the Free Trial of StepsWeb and get your learner to do the Placement Test.
The series consists of 12 workbooks. The lower levels, Workbooks A – F cater for learners up to a spelling age of approximately 7 ½ years and the higher levels, Workbooks 1 – 6 cater for learners from spelling age 7 ½ years upwards and include extension material for older learners.
It is recommended that you also purchase the Teaching Guide A – F, which gives answers and teaching guidance for Workbooks A – F. You may also wish to purchase the Teacher Manual, which gives more detailed methodology, background theory and a range of quick and easy screening tests.
