Read Write Inc. Phonics: Get Writing!: Red Ditty Books 1-5 School Pack by Ruth Miskin

The Get Writing! Red Ditty Books are followed by seven levels of Get Writing! Books. The writing activities build on the reading activities that children have completed, helping them to develop ideas and vocabulary for writing. In the Get Writing! Red Ditty Books, children read four fun, engaging Ditties. These are new editions of the books previously titled Read Write Inc. Phonics Ditty Books. They complete seven reading activities to ensure that their reading is fully supported. These include practising reading Speed Sounds/Speed Words before and after reading the complete Ditty, sounding out 'green' and 'red' words, and discussing some 'questions to talk about' after reading. Children then complete writing activities which are closely linked to their reading. For each of the four Ditties there are 'Complete a sentence' and 'Hold a sentence' activities. These provide a guided introduction to writing a whole sentence and reinforce children's knowledge of Speed Sounds Set 1. Teaching notes are provided in the Get Writing! 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.


Read Write Inc. actually teaches children to read and write. We love using this programme because children achieve so much so quickly. They want to read and write. It's the best literacy programme we have ever known. Lorna Jackson, Headteacher, Maryland Primary School
