Are you tired of saying, “That is an exception?” Participants will discover how knowing the phonograms and rules will logically explain 98% of English words and how this knowledge is beneficial for teaching reading to beginning and struggling readers. The importance of phonemic awareness and systematic phonics will be explored as well as how to teach high-frequency words without rote memorization. We’ll include practical information along with research that demonstrates the power of engaging, multi-sensory teaching for all students. This presentation will provide examples of games and activities that focus on the foundational concepts of reading instruction while making learning fun and engaging.
