About Sound Waves Year 7

13/6/12

To support Sound Waves schools in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia the Firefly Education team has created Sound Waves National Edition Year 7.

Schools can now implement a whole school program for their primary students.

Building on the consistent approach in Sound Waves National Edition Foundation to Year 6, the Year 7 program has been specifically written to help students prepare for their transition to secondary school. The Year 7 units of work include:

  • more independent activities for students, including tasks ideal for homework
  • a focus on Greek and Latin roots, base words, prefixes and suffixes
  • extra List Words at a more complex level
  • additional grammar concepts with accompanying Helpful Hints and answers
  • a greater variety of BLMs to assist with fast finishers and differentiation
  • teaching opportunities through dictation assessment activities.

The following materials are available:

  • Sound Waves 7 Student Books
  • Sound Waves 7 Teacher Books (includes one year’s access to Sound Waves Online)
  • Extended Student Charts (to assist with decoding and encoding complex words).

The Year 7 online content includes BLMs, projectable Student Book pages, answers and student logins to soundwaveskids.com.au. Digital packages are also available for non-textbook schools.
