What We Do :
Centrally Kids Education Services is designed to assist students in order to achieve expected competencies in the core academic skills of reading, writing, spelling and mathematics.
Instruction is provided to students who need more support due to poor performance, medical conditions or additional needs. Students are assessed and programs are tailored to suit each students individual needs.
We use the researched based Spalding Program to learn the most common 70 phonic sounds and 30 spelling rules. The knowledge and skills are then transferred to our reading program.
We use high frequency word knowledge, spelling patterns, rules, segmenting and blending to assist with word building and sentence construction. Descriptive writing is also a focus using various writing strategies.
Using explicit, sequential and multi-sensory teaching methods, students develop strategies to decode, blend, read and comprehend texts of various genres.
All areas of mathematics are covered systematically using the Australian School Curriculum guides.
Spalding Program - Writing Road to Reading
The Writing Road to Reading Program is an evidence based program, delivered worldwide and an extension from Letterland with 70 codes (sounds/phonemes) found in the English language. These codes can be blended to form the many words we speak and write or can be segmented to read and spell. The ability to blend and segment is the most accurate indicator of a child's success in learning to read and write.
