Are you using a structured literacy program aligned with the science of reading? This resource includes teaching slides to correspond with the following components of a systematic and explicit phonics lesson:

  • Sound Warm Up: Phonemic awareness activities.
  • Sound Drill: Review previously learned sounds.
  • Sound/s of the Day: Teach new sound spelling.
  • Decodable Words: Practice blending words with the sound of the day and previously learned sounds.
  • Automatic Word Recognition: Teach and practice high-frequency words / sight words / heart words.
  • Reading Decodable Text: Reading connected texts with the phonics patterns students have learned in the lesson, and build fluency.
  • Word Work: Dictation, word sorts, building words, word chains, phoneme-grapheme mapping, vocabulary, morphology matrix, etc.

I created these slide templates to work with the phonics portion of most structured literacy curricular tools or elementary grade levels. You can edit most slides to suit your needs by inserting text, or by simply writing on them while teaching. Several slide options are included for each step of a systematic phonics lesson. You can easily pick and choose the slides that work best for your students.

*Note: Some slides like the phonemic awareness slides, and word work slides are not editable because they are meant to be completed during the lesson with students. You can always insert your own text boxes in the PowerPoint files if they aren't already set up where you want them.

This resource contains 51 "more color" slides and 51 "less color" slides that you can use as you teach different components of your phonics lesson.

Each style is included in more color for use on an interactive whiteboard, and in less color to use in sheet protectors in your small group binder. (You may also choose to print some pages in black and white for student use.)

These are flexible slides that can be used in a variety of ways. For example…

When teaching whole group, you might start with a quick phonemic awareness warm-up drill, introduce a common sound-spelling pattern, drill previously learned sounds and high-frequency words, then break into small groups to read decodable texts and do word work activities.

In that scenario, you could use the following "more color" slides on your interactive whiteboard: The phonemic awareness warm-up slides that work best for your whole class, the sound introduction slide, the sound drill slide, and the word automaticity slides.

For the small group portion of the lesson where you will focus on reading a decodable text and completing a word work activity, you could print the “less color” slides that go with those sections, insert them in sheet protectors and keep them in your small group binder. *Some slides could also be printed in black and white for student use.

As an intervention teacher, I use the "more color" slides when I work with students in my classroom, and carry the "less color" version in a binder to use when I’m working in hallways or small group rooms.
