I teach 1st grade. I am hoping this comes with experience eventually Also, I have two older children that have dyslexia and struggle with their phonological awareness hence in reading.
I understood how words were divided up into syllables, where the accent marks should go, what diphthongs were, and all that good stuff. And all of a sudden…. I always say the whole entire class could benefit from it. Thanks for reading! Are you on my list? Students benefit from learning the 6 syllable types and knowing how to use them to decode words. Thanks so much for this post! My college education also did not prepare me for teaching phonics at all.
You can the list here: learningattheprimarypond. Thank goodness for OG. I am extremely excited about this post! Bear, D. Blevins, W. Thousand Oaks, CA: Corwin. She has said many times that if studenats are reading above grade level we do t need to worry about them.
I am searching hookers phonies need not reply
I am looking forward to this series Allison! Nor did I understand that knowing the rules can help readers figure out vowel sounds and decode words! Hey Stephanie! And probably first grade teachers too. This post is just the tip of the iceberg. My co teacher is a special ed teacher and does the Orton Gillianham sensory phonics program with our students with IEPs and our low levels readers. I hope this series is helpful to you!!
I have lots more planned for you! The Spanish major required that I take all kinds of history and literature and language courses—hence the linguistics class that I dreaded so much. Best Wishes, Brooke. I taught middle school math for 5 years, then transitioned into a technology position for a few years. Linguistics sounded mind-numbingly boring, and…it kinda was.
Somehow, I passed the class. Those might be a good starting place for you, though. So I hope to get a lot of information from you.
2. students are better equipped to decode words when they know syllable division rules.
Fountas and Pinnel are very weak when it comes to phonics. My programs were so strong in every other sense.
SO awesome! I am so excited to read your upcoming posts on teaching phonics.
I also began my teaching career when best practices was teaching Whole Language. Hi Melinda! When I found out that I had to take a Spanish linguistics course in college, I was pretty annoyed. I cannot wait for your other posts!
Phonics or sight words? teaching kids to read
I do worry for them and the time the get to a text where background and context clues are not enough. All of the multisensory instructional activities are so helpful, and I also like to add in word sorts as a supplement. Can you give me any insight you have on these phonics … ». Hey Margie! After a couple of years, I moved to a new school for a bilingual Kindergarten position, where I was teaching reading in Spanish.
This is super interesting and important to me and my work! I post on there when a new post is ready. I knew embarrassingly little about teaching phonics in English sorry, kids!
Could you include some research resources? I hope the series is helpful to you! Hey Lauren! I do not feel I was well prepared to teach phonics. Hey Molly! Tasks like rhyming or segmenting words can be more difficult for students with dyslexia.
You may want to supplement with something from a different program. However, ALL students benefit from learning phonics in a systematic, explicit way, through multisensory techniques.
The lightbulb went on. I have been teaching Fundations at the kindergarten level for 4 years.
Researchers now believe that people with dyslexia have weaker phonological processing abilities than their non-dyslexic peers. My school does have a phonies program fundations but that is very rarely enough. When I had a deeper understanding of the structure of the language, I was a better phonics and reading teacher.

Students with dyslexia also benefit from multisensory phonics instruction instruction that incorporates multiple senses; for example, tracing a word in the air while simultaneously spelling it aloud. Hey Allison! My undergraduate majors in college were Elementary Education and Spanish. I felt much more confident teaching phonics in Spanish because I knew the ins and outs of the language.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this info!! Portsmouth, NH: Heinemann. Hey Sasha! Hey Desiree! Our district has recently adopted the Fountas and Pinnell phonics program. Some students are just now mastering letter sounds and then some can read works with vowel teams and blends.
I definitely feel under prepared. Looking forward to this series!!! I also systematically and explicitly teach the phonics and phonological pieces of my districts adopted Language Arts curriculum.
1. one in five students need explicit, systematic phonics instruction (that uses multisensory techniques) in order to become proficient in reading.
If you notice that some of your students are really struggling with phonological awareness skillsthis is an indicator that they may struggle with reading in the future. I feel so crazy when I think back on how unprepared I was to teach phonics! LOVE this post!! Somehow those Kinders learned how to read!
5 super important things about teaching phonics that i wish i’d learned in college
Literally cannot wait for the next post!! Many of those students will not become fully proficient readers unless they have clear, systematic, and explicit phonics instruction. Looking forward to future posts on this subject! We have a large range of readers in our room. I hope that this series will help you feel more confident in teaching reading and phonics.
Would love to go through the OG training but do not have the money and our school district will not pay for it. I do Fundations with my group. I knew that guided reading was NOT moving my students forward, and how difficult it was for them to remember the sounds and patterns when reading and writing. I have been working as a Reading Specialist for 6 years now and also never received training in the importance of teaching phonics in a systematic way to the students that struggle the most!
Systematic, explicit phonics instruction is important for all students.
This is the first post in a series about phonics. I will be starting my student teaching in Aug. Although I have classes under my belt I do not feel one ounce confident in teaching phonics. Hey Brooke! I teach first grade in Queens, NY in an co-teaching classroom.
