The Yellow Level
The Lexplore Intensive Yellow Level provides simple training to develop children’s foundations in phonological awareness, understanding and skills, through their interaction with simple digraphs, phonemes and blends. Students will then work through different combinations of these, in the form of nonsense words, so that they can learn to link the sounds and develop their reading technique.

Nonsense words provide a way for children to practice different sounds without the help of prior knowledge, understanding and experience, focussing solely on their decoding and blending skills. Once students have mastered their ability to combine the different phonemes and blends at this level, they can progress towards Lexplore Intensive Yellow word families and high frequency words. These, more commonly seen high frequency words cannot all be easily decoded and must be learnt by sight.
