Crack The Code

Crack the code is a step by step phonemic awareness and visual-auditory program that helps students develop the essential skills of reading and writing and in turn achieve literacy success.

It is a sequential program that incorporates visual (using vowel signs) and auditory techniques to effectively teach the reading and spelling of sounds (but especially vowels within words). It is structured in 5 parts, each focusing on a different vowel sound group.

Crack the Code is especially effective for students who struggle to apply phonic skills to reading and writing by using this approach of blended phonemic awareness, visual as well as auditory. It focuses on improving the child’s ability to read and write vowel sounds within words by teaching vowel signs for each of the twenty Australian vowel sounds.

The program is immensely successful with students of all ages because struggling students in this area usually have better visual than auditory skills so benefit from learning visual signs for each of the twenty vowel sounds.

Crack the Code is effective and successful at any age or year level however early intervention is best.

The program can be applied at a whole class level with all students learning the techniques and signs of the vowel sounds. At Currumbin State School, students in the early years, who have difficulty learning and applying the techniques of the program, or are identified as being behind their peers within literacy are withdrawn and given focused one-on-one intervention still using the same skills and techniques of the program. Parents of struggling children are also trained to use, teach and practice the skills and techniques of the program at home with their children – especially during the first two years of school.
