Would you like to try a phonics program designed to help you teach decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) skills in kindergarten and first grade? Then, this free sample of my teacher-directed Phonics Program for Analogy Based Decoding is just for you! You’ll have everything in your hands that you and your students need for the full experience.
Be sure to try before you buy this phonics program 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.
- can be used with your whole class or for phonics intervention.
Get started with this freebie that includes the first 2 key words (hat and zip) with 6 days of lessons.
The complete 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.
Get ready to have your students use words they know to read and spell new words.
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.
