HOW THIS WORKS !
Sounds & Dictation
The pieces to the big puzzle.
Students will learn all 74 sounds needed to read. YES THERE ARE ONLY 74 !!!
Students will listen and write along with Ms. Erin. By hearing different sounds put together they will be able to spell words faster.
Writing & Markings
Constant repetition builds neatness.
Writing is a vehicle for improving reading. You will be shocked at how much it helps and how much they will be doing in my program!
Students will use a classic marking system to bring attention to the sounds they are learning and improve their spelling.
The right books at the right time.
Reading isn’t just memorizing the order of letters and words. Sounds placed together allow us to write those words and, in turn, read them in a book.
"LITTLE BOOKS" RECOMENDATIONS
Not all books are created equal! I have compiled a list of shorter, easier-to-read books that will reinforce the sounds they are using in this program.
