The best way to make progress as a student is to do take tiny steps – hence the title Toe by Toe. This book highlights that even when the steps you’re taking may be small, you can still measure the progress you’re making from the very beginning, boosting the student’s confidence in themselves.
The method used in this resource is easy to use, as over 25 years of experience and fieldwork has gone into the development of the system. Anyone can tutor with the help of Toe by Toe, with the manual often working best for those looking for a more casual approach.
The syllable division used in this resource is unique and unlike any usual pattern of syllable division usually used to teach reading. Students are taught pronunciation through nonsense words first that can then be applied to any multi-syllabic word, opening them up to a whole new world of reading.
Any literacy problem can be helped with Toe by Toe, with reading being approached a lot differently with this program than it would be regularly in school. The length of time it takes to get through the book is the best indicator of how severe a child’s reading difficulties may be when using this book.
