Part of the Professional Teacher professional development series.

Phonics and Phonemic Awareness are two of the earliest reading skills that students learn. Together, they form the foundation for all other reading skills!
Let’s look briefly at the research and then dig into actual fun instructional activities that help students build these skills.
You won’t just learn about phonemic awareness and phonics, and you won’t just learn about effective strategies. We will actually use and practice effective instructional activities to help you strengthen your understanding of these critical reading components. We will learn by doing!

What About LETRS?

This workshop draws from the same body of research as LETRS. If you have received LETRS training, this workshop will deepen your understanding of the LETRS content and help you identify effective practices to make LETRS come alive in your classroom.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is targeted at K – 3 teachers.
On the other hand…Phonemic awareness and Phonics don’t stop at 3rd grade. If you teach older students—or if you teach in a specific content area—you will also find valuable strategies to help students strengthen their comprehension of both informative and literary texts.
