The Ditties are short, phonically decodable passages based on the
letter sounds learned in Speed Sounds Set 1. Each book contains
three Ditties and seven reading activities, including: a list of
Speed Sounds to practise before reading each Ditty, a list of Green
words and Red words ('tricky' high-frequency words) and questions
to talk about. The Ditties prepare children to quickly move on to
the Storybooks, building their vocabulary and ensuring they will be
able to decode all the words in the stories with confidence. There
are accompanying Get Writing! Red Ditty Books which provide
practice in early writing skills and a Get Writing! Handbook which
contains guidance on how to use the Ditties to support children's
writing. Full guidance on using the Ditties as part of Read Write
Inc. can be found in the Read Write Inc. Phonics Handbook. Channel
4 featured Ruth Miskin and the Read Write Inc. method being used in
schools in a series of programmes broadcast in Autumn 2007 and
Summer 2008. Read Write Inc. raised standards and turned struggling
and non-readers into more confident and competent readers.
