What we do:

Reading decoding specifically addresses student difficulties in the area of decoding and spelling.  This course will provide reading instruction using the PhonicsBoost reading program that incorporates various reading aspects in each lesson.  All lessons focus on reading accurately and include opportunities for students to practice reading aloud.  With explicit instruction and practice, students will become more accurate, efficient, and confident in their reading abilities.

How we do it: 

  • Orton approach to the study of phonics and total language
  • Written and oral drills
  • Written and visual repetition of words
  • Fluency lists
  • Visual and oral representation of ideas for comprehension
  • Guided and independent practice
  • Modeling
  • Spelling rules
  • Rubrics
  • Wait time
  • Syllable type recognition
