Key Features of Structured Literacy?

A structured literacy approach is recommended for all students, especially those with dyslexia and those who are having difficulty with decoding because it directly addresses phonological skills, decoding, and spelling.

Scope and Sequence:

At St Patrick's School we follow the Little Learners Love Literacy teaching sequence. This introduces children to single phonemes (the smallest sound represented by a certain letter) and progresses to diagraphs (two letter that make one sound) followed by vowel teams (two or more letter that make a vowel sound) and dipthongs (a sound formed by combining two vowels such as 'oi' in coin).
