This Word Work is meant to be FUN!
It is my hope that the engaging activities in the units will help emerging readers reinforce skills that will help them become fluent, life long readers.
I use these activities following the Gradual Release of Responsibility research based best practice. I model the ideas many times and gradually release the responsibility for the work to the students. With differentiation in mind, this might happen at different times for different students. Many units have brand new ideas presented, so the gradual release may look different each day. This means that the activities can be done as direct instruction or as follow up independent work or work done at a Literacy Center.
