"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Red Ditty Group

The Red Ditty books are the next step after completing the Ditty sheets. Each Red Ditty book has 6 short stories inside. The expectation is that the children will read at least one of these short stories a day, as well as doing the activities that follow it.


Begin each phonics session by recapping the sounds your child has been taught. You can use the Desktop Speed Sound Chart, Set 1, 2 & 3 Speed Sound Books or the Speed Sound chart below. Try mixing up the order in which you point to the sounds for your child to read...keep them on their toes!
