Andy has sent me some photos and it is high time that we reinstated a 'gallery' page to our Phonics International website. Please don't hesitate to send us photos, video footage, descriptions of progress - I'm urging David to set up a facility for these things (I don't have the technological skills - just the phonics expertise!!!!)Hi Debbie,
Hope you are well
Just to let you know that I am out in Mumbai at the moment with my charity, Street Life, training the teachers at the Vision Rescue Project. Thought I would share some photos of one of the teachers who is starting to teach phonics in one of the slum areas using your resources.
I am working with her and another teacher to develop their phonics teachings and help them get more out of the Phonics International resources. It is amazing to see the children grasping the sounds and starting to read words.
The school that has been set up has just started back after a holiday so I will be will be visiting them next week to see how the phonics teaching is going. I will take some pictures and keep you updated on this.
All the best,
