Check teacher guide for
routine directions
 Assessment
 Placement tests
 Word lists

Word list A is primary instruction
 Word lists B and C are re-teaching or more challenging
words

WHEN CAN I USE SIPPS?
SIPPS should only be used outside the 90
minutes. It is not a replacement core.
 If students are having difficulty passing Read
Well in 1st grade or Kindergarten, they should
not be placed in SIPPS. These students should
receive “Jell Well” lessons and review Read Well.

Oral blending: syllables and words “put them
together”
Phoneme recognition: “Say / / when you hear / /”
Phoneme position: “What is the firs/last/middle
sound”
Oral blending: onset/rime “put them together”
Segmentation “say the sounds in these words” or “say
the two parts”
Rhyming “rhyme with _____”
Manipulation/Delete sounds “say _____ drop / /”
COMPONENTS TO A SIPPS BEGINNING
LESSON

Phonics and decodable words
Introduce new sounds via a written sentence, mnemonic
wall card (put up cards as sounds are introduced), and
sound card. Prompt by saying “sound” and hold continuous
sounds for 2 seconds
 Review flashcards via “sound” prompt (20-25 cards)
 Blend decodable words via “sound” prompt and “read”
prompt

Sight words
Introduce new sight words via an oral sentence
Use “Read, spell, read” prompt three times for new
words
Review sight words using “read, spell, read” prompt
once (20-25 cards)

Read sentences word by word then re-read whole
sentences.
For sight words (underlined) prompt students by
saying “read”.
For decodable words, expect students to sound out
word with the “sound” prompt then “read” prompt.

LESSON
Students practice little blue book for the lesson 3
times
 Students practice the little blue book from the
current and past 2 or 3 lessons
 Send home practice story sheet for reading at
home OR use for additional practice or partner
reading.

Prerequisite Lessons
Use the Prerequisite Lessons (P1, P2…) for students
who have not mastered the short vowels or consonant
digraphs
 10 lessons in the back of the teacher guide

LESSON

Phoneme Play
Through activities that don’t involve print, high level
phonological routines involve segmentation and
phoneme manipulation
 Set A is for the lesson, Set B is for re-teaching


Phonics and decoable words
Explicit and systematic instruction of spelling/sound
relationships followed by the reading of mixed list
 There are 2 mixed list: Set A is for the lesson, Set B
is for re-teaching

COMPONENTS TO A SIPPS EXTENSION
LESSON

Sight word
Each word is introduced in a sentence
 Students say the word and spell the word
 Previously introduced words are reviewed


Reading a story
Teacher gives the setting
 Students chorally read the story sentence by sentence with
a pause between each students to allow student to look
ahead at the next sentence to decode difficult words.


Guided spelling
Students spell decodable words
 This is not a test
 Teacher gives support when needed to guarantee success


Following lessons 1-18 students read orally to build
fluency.
Students read current story 2 times and re-read
previous story.
The teacher circulates to monitor reading and note
difficulties.
After lesson 18, students can read any selection at
their independent level or continue reviewing the
stories in the story book.
Spelling memory list
Spelling list are in appendix (pg 228).
 Words are keyed to phonics and sight words taught
in the program

SIPPS CHALLENGE
SIPPS CHALLENGE COMPONENTS

Single Syllable phonics
Used when students have not mastered all of the
phonics elements or have mastered them so recently
they need review.
 Includes review of phonics elements and application
to mixed list

Phonics
New cards
 Review cards
 Mixed list written on board (or doc cam)

SIPPS CHALLENGE COMPONENTS

Transformations

Syllabic
Fast paced exercise where students read open and closed
syllables using “is the vowel at the end or not at the end”

morphemic (after lesson 20)
Replaces syllabic transformations
 Teacher starts with base word and adds prefixes, suffixes,
and inflectional endings.
 Fast paced
 Students chorally read as teachers make changes

New cards
Review cards
Students learn to recognize by sight 90 common
syllables.
Both regular and irregular syllables are taught
3 word lists
A: 2nd grade or Year 1 of SIPPS Challenge

Practice reading polysyllabic words.
Teacher writes words on the board syllable by
syllable.
Students chorally read
3 word lists A, B, and C
Lesson sticky note
Board space or doc cam
Pens and eraser
SIPPS CHALLENGE COMPONENTS

Reading entire words
Routine develops flexibility in applying reading skills
 Students learn 2 generalizations:

1.
2.
2 consonants between vowel: divide between the
consonants
1 consonant between vowels: divide first before the
consonant or divide after the consonant
Students not asked to memorized decoding method,
but are guided through this procedure with many
words
 3 word lists: A, B, C
 Words written on board or doc cam
 Pen (different color) to mark syllable breaks

Lesson Sticky Notes
Write the lesson # at the top and use it again next year
 This is where you keep the words you’ll be using for the
lesson
 Use it for 3 components: transformations, reading by
syllables and guided spelling
