All see that this program is something quite magnificent in teaching young children to listen, speak, read and write. The program proceeds from known to unknown and simple to complex. We focus on known words as much as possible removing the need for phonic symbols.
There is no need to phonically sound Big Roos-ter Chic-ken, Di-gi-cel, Co-ca Co-la, Pep-si-Co-la, Pa-pu-a New Gui-nea and choc-o-late ice-cream. But the children recognize the syllables and stress patterns.
These are slipped into the occasional sentence together with village names O-mi-li, O-kap-a, Tam-i-gi-du and Kai-a-pit.
To stay among known words is to introduce a hnndred or more easy to speak and read words and sentences. Kids love it. Big words are not a problem if the students already know the words.
I will go to Tam-i- gi-du.
My dad was born in Kai-a-pit.
I like to live in E-ri-ku.
We will go to Big Roo-ster Chic-ken.
I would like some chic-ken and Co-ca-Cola
I bought my phone at Di-gi-cel.
Would you like a straw-ber-ry ice-cream?
We must never underestimate the skill of many small children. In the elementary school that I support with charts of patterns, small children try to outdo one another with speed chanting. They have memorized basic charts in a few weeks. What skill they will have after after memorizing the entire course. It will happen.
The subjects in the 2 hour sessions have been (1) phonics (2) Mastery Writing and (3) words from Latin and Greek roots. Very successful. These have been first time experiences for most young teachers. Windows have opened wide. Morobe Education leads the nation.
We have taken the literacy program from elementary school to Grade 12. Derivation from Latin and Greek has been presented as word building and phonics for the upper grades. This study was removed from curriculum in the USA and Australia some 50 years ago. The heart of English was stolen by fools.
Teachers were shown that older students need to learn a more complex form of writing than what students learn in elementary school. So Latin based words and simple complex sweet English will lift the standard of students into adulthood. Please click:
