Once your child has learnt a few sounds they will then be taught to blend a few sounds together to read a word.
Green words are words that are decodable, made up of sounds that your child recognises. Each sound has a button underneath called a ‘sound button’. The children must press each button and say the sound. They must then blend the sounds together to make the word. As your child progresses with their reading they will begin to read words by sight.
Red words are used to help the children recognise words that are tricky. Red words are not decodable and you cannot sound them out. Red words are words that your child needs to learn and remember by sight.
