Early literacy skills underpin later reading success. This two day series will focus on the research evidence related to phonemic awareness and phonics instruction. The first session will explore how to move primary grade students to advanced levels of phonemic awareness, and how to support beginning readers in learning that letters represent the speech sounds of our language. One instructional tool to facilitate this understanding is a sound wall. The second segment of this training will explore the use of a sound wall, which organizes words by place and manner of articulation of speech sounds. Organizing words by speech sounds helps early readers connect phonology and orthography. Due to the persistent obstacles for children just learning to read and those who are at-risk for reading failure, it is also imperative that teachers select the most appropriate text tools for instruction. The third segment of this training provides practitioners with necessary foundational knowledge in text type selection for instructional impact. Participants will be instructed in how to successfully implement a direct, explicit, and systematic phonemic awareness and phonics instruction into daily classroom practice during this series.

Audience: Core classroom teachers, Special Educators, Reading Specialists, working with developing readers. This event is not relevant to short-term and day-to-day substitutes and paraprofessionals.
