Toe By Toe Reading Manual For Teachers And Parents
Help students make progress with their reading by the tiniest steps - one toe at a time!
A highly structured multi-sensory one-to-one reading manual which can be used be either teachers, learning support staff or parents to establish reading skills. Students can clearly measure their reading progress right from the first page, boosting confidence and self-esteem.
The unique syllable division employed by Toe by Toe is very easy to use though it is not the syllable division generally used for the teaching of reading. Once the sound of a phoneme has been taught using the 'polynons' (nonsense words), these rules can then be applied to any multi-syllabic word and children find a whole new world of reading opening before their eyes. Over 25 years of fieldwork went into the development of the system and it is this research which makes the method so easy to use. You don't have to be trained in any field of education to tutor with Toe by Toe. In fact, the manual often works better with non-professionals using it as they do not come to the task with any pre-conceived notions and thus simply follow the very detailed instructions to the letter.
