    I am a TA who has been asked to teach a year 2 child 1:1 for RWI (I have had no training). He used to be in the lowest but struggled to keep up. He has knowledge of the first 12 sounds, but struggles to blend, segment and write CVC words. I have been asked to only teach speed sounds, green words and use the magnetic letters. At our school we only do 30 mins of RWI - we do not use the writing books etc.
    I am currently teaching him set 1 sounds and doing of blending. However I am unsure of the structure of the session. Here is what I do:
    Speed sound cards already learnt.
    Introduce new sound, 'today we are learning a new sound, m'. My turn, your turn saying sound.
    Show the picture side of the card, say 'mmmountain', My turn your turn saying mountain. Draw a picture on a piece of paper (of Maisie mountain), trace letter with finger saying 'mmmountain'.
    Turn card over to show letter, say 'm'.
    Play game of showing either side of the card, getting the child to recognise either m or mountain.

    After I have taught the new sounds I will put that card and two previously learnt with the picture facing up. I will ask the child to point at the picture I say. I repeat this again but with the sound facing up (can you point to 'm', can you point to 'a').

    Now this is where I get confused, I have packs of green words (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4,1.5 and 1.6) and also magnetic letters. How do I teach the green words for word time?
    I get confused as to when the child has to fred talk or fred in their head. Also, I'm not sure whether I need to create 'piles' with the green words. Should I be teaching particular green words with a certain sound? I am also unsure what to do with the magnetic letters.

    Any help would be much appreciated and if session ideas could be written clearly that would be great.

    I hope you get some answers, but you'd be more likely to get help on the primary forum. Most teachers here are secondary.
