Session 1: From Speech to Text: How to set up and engage students in Phonemic Awareness and Phonics activities that provide strategies for independent reading and writing. View the recording here (passcode: D7NQ8^nd) and the handouts here
Session 2: Vocabulary Building in the classroom setting. Students are coming to us with decreasing amounts of vocabulary, but we can address these gaps with explicit instruction in word meaning and morphology.
Session 3: Fluency Once students are confidently decoding, developing fluency builds confidence and is a critical component of comprehension. This final session explores activities, phrases and decodable texts that support fluency growth.
