Not all students are mentally, physically or emotionally ready to read in kindergarten or first grade. This product is a 507-page, age-appropriate progressive phonics program designed for mentoring 3rd and 4th graders who have poor phonics and decoding skills and are significantly behind in their reading grade level.
Phonics Strategies for Struggling 3rd and 4th Graders examines phonetic building blocks (phonograms/chunks, prefixes, suffixes, syllable divisions, phonics and spelling rules, 3-letter consonant blends, etc.) to supply students with the tools they need to successfully decode unknown words and become independent readers.
Part 1 of Phonics Strategies for Struggling 3rd and 4th Graders emphasizes Vc, Vcc, R-controlled phonograms, and words ending in –le syllables (zle, tle, fle, etc.). Most activities require less than three minutes (to be presented in bundles) so that a 25-minute session will have a variety of reading, listening, writing, phonics poems and hands-on activities while reviewing multiple phonics and spelling concepts.
Phonics Strategies contains fifty-four pages of Nonsense Word Challenge Sheets combining word families with prefixes, suffixes and less commonly used 2 and 3-letter consonant combinations (phrupt'ible, non'squend, re'chrench'tion). Using nonsense words is the quickest, most time efficient way for older poor readers to absorb phonics concepts and learn decoding skills.
