PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Engaging phonics instruction is not easy for teachers to plan for and takes A LOT of time to pull all necessary resources together. We all know that in order for children to become proficient readers and writers, phonics instruction is a necessary component in every classroom. The challenge for many teachers is to teach phonics in an embedded, connected, meaningful way. Isolated phonics instruction does not help students become proficient readers and writers. Students must understand how sounds, letters, and words work and practice using these in continuous text.

The Common Core State Standards have 7 areas that teachers focus instruction in English Language Arts: speaking and listening, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. One way to ensure phonics instruction is not left in isolation is to teach phonics in each of these 7 areas.

This product will help you teach vowel teams in these 7 areas:
Vocabulary: New words/phrases from poems, adding new words to sorts that students discover
Writing: Writing and Reading Around the Room, adding OA/OW words to poetry, High Frequency Activity Books
Speaking and Listening: Listening and responding to poems being read orally, listening to/for fluent reading, reading poetry (shared reading)
Fluency: Fluently reading poems, fluently reading word cards
Phonemic Awareness: Listening for OA/OW sound in poetry and picture/word sorts
Comprehension: Poetry can be used just as narrative stories are to teach literacy elements (characters, setting, problem, solution, etc)
Phonics: Word and picture sorts, poetry, high frequency words

All background information needed for the teacher on the following is also included:
Gradual Release of Responsibility
Lists of OA/OW words
