*Whole word decoding is a phonics technique designed to be implemented AFTER students receive instruction in the traditional process of segmenting and blending sounds in words. Whole word decoding activities give students the multiple opportunities they need to develop automaticity in decoding words. Each student in a small group gets an opportunity to individually decode 20 or more words within a 15-20 minute session. With traditional segmenting and blending instruction, an individual student may only decode 5-10 words, and often only as part of a choral response. These lists are an excellent resource to use for one-on-one tutoring as well. Programs developed by Lindamood-Bell, Wilson, and other Orton-Gillingham-based programs use lists like these in their remedial programs.
