TRUGS cards also come in individual stages, with each stage focusing on a different set of starting words and phonic patterns.
The individual stages can be roughly grouped into three difficulty bands:
- Stages 1-5 are intended for a reading age of 5 - 7.5 years
- Stages 6-10 are intended for a reading age of 7.5 - 9 years
- Stages 11-15 are intended for a reading age of 9-14 years
Each set of cards are equivalent to 1 of the games in the red trugs at home box 1. See below for phonic knowledge in each set of cards.
Set 0 functions as an introduction to letter sounds before progressing to reading and spelling vc and cvc words.
