Read Write Inc. Phonics: Red Ditty Book 5 Pick it Up by Gill Munton

The Red Ditty Books offer children practice in reading short decodable passages that form an important bridge between reading single words and whole sentences. They reinforce the Read Write Inc. Phonics Set 1 sounds. Each book contains three fun and humorous ditties with linked reading activities to develop accuracy, fluency and comprehension. They also prepare children for reading the longer Storybooks and Non-fiction books. Activities at the start of the books help children to practise the sounds and words they will encounter in the book. Questions to talk about at the end of the story provide an extra opportunity for developing childrens comprehension. The books are part of the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme, developed by Ruth Miskin. The programme is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. It includes Handbooks, Sounds Cards, Word Cards, Storybooks, Non-fiction, Writing books and an Online resource. Read Write Inc. is fully supported by comprehensive professional development from Ruth Miskin Training.


Read Write Inc. Phonics has had a massive impact on our phonic results, raising them from 56% to 96%. All of our staff enjoy using the programme, including our teaching assistants, who feel it has empowered them. We are all amazed and delighted at the difference it has made to teaching and learning in our school. Joan Cullen, Head Teacher, Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Luton Read Write Inc. Phonics is effective because of the speed in which the children are able to make progress. There is a very clear structure and children are empowered to succeed because of the systematic and rigorous approach. Katherine Roberts, Reading Manager, Elmhurst Primary School, Newham As a Head Teacher, its wonderful to have such confidence in a programme that you know no child will leave Key Stage 1 as a poor reader. How amazing is that! Jacqueline Savage, Principal, Outwood Primary Academy Lofthouse Gate, Wakefield
