You may be wondering… What is an analogy-based approach to teaching phonics?

With this method, students are taught to use parts of words they have already learned to decode words they don’t know.

Get ready to have your students use words they know to read and spell new words!

Phonics Program for Analogy Based Decoding

Are you searching for a phonics program to help you teach decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) skills in kindergarten and first-grade?

Would you like one that:

  • is explicit and systematic?
  • provides detailed lesson plans for you?
  • has built-in visual supports for your students?
  • helps students who struggle with blending and segmenting individual phonemes?

Well then, this teacher-directed analogy-based phonics program is just right for you!

How Can I Use This Analogy-Based Phonics Program

You can implement this phonics program in a whole class or small group setting, in a general education or intervention setting. The pacing and setting can be adapted to address your students’ instructional needs.

The core of the program is based on 3 days of lessons for each key word. I have included pacing options to give you ideas on compressing or extending the lessons.

Allow 45 minutes per lesson until you determine the amount of time (less or more) that works for your class/ group.

Which Students Can I Use It With

To benefit from this program, your students should recognize most letters and be able to produce their corresponding sounds.

They should also have prior exposure to producing rhyming words and to blending and segmenting onsets and rimes as well as 3 phonemes.

What Do I Need to Know

This program is based on 46 spelling patterns (rimes, phonograms, word families) drawn from the high utility/ most common lists compiled by Wylie and Durrell and by Fry.

Each spelling pattern is represented by a key word. Each key word has a corresponding picture that shows it’s meaning. The pictures provide visual cues to support learning.

The patterns covered are: vowel-consonant, vowel-consonant-consonant, vowel-consonant-e, and vowel-vowel. One r-controlled pattern, -ore, is also included.

The program focuses on one-syllable words without prefixes and suffixes.

This is a cumulative program so the sequence is fixed.

All materials are either black/ white or color with a black/ gray/ white option.

You’ll Receive:

  • Teacher Information
  • Lesson Plans for the 46 Key Words
  • Worksheets and Recording Sheets
  • Supporting Materials Including:
  • Wall Charts
  • Strategy Bookmarks
  • Word Wall Headers
  • Key Word Cards
  • Word Cards
  • Picture Cards
  • Onset and Rime Cards
