Phonemic Awareness 

 

Research demonstrates a strong link between children’s early abilities in phonemic awareness and their later reading skills. Struggling readers are apt to have phonological processing deficits that are causal to their word-reading deficits. Extensive meta-analysis demonstrates the powerful effect of phonemic awareness training on reading and spelling, especially when the prevention and early remediation occurs during Pre-K through 2nd grade.

 

Our ten hour Introduction to Phonemic Awareness uses an Orton-Gillingham approach by providing teachers with multisensory methods.

 

  • The structure of sounds, syllables, words, and sentences

  • Engaging, playful and highly effective for teaching phonemic awareness,  metacognitive strategies and listening skills

  • Accelerated reading and writing growth of entire classroom

  • Reduced incidence of children with reading delays

 

 Participants will leave with both teacher and student materials to be used immediately.

Alphabet/Beginning Phonics

 

 

Letters are the springboard for reading.  Beginning readers must be able to quickly identify letters before they can begin to recognize familiar letter sequences.  Not only does research support that letter naming be accurate, but it must also be rapid.  Letter identification must be effortless.  Teachers who provide literacy instruction must understand the underlying principles and terminology of effective alphabet instruction and decoding.

 

Our seven hour Alphabet/Beginning Phonics uses an Orton-Gillingham approach providing teachers with multisensory methods which focus on:

 

  • Rapid association of letter symbols with names and sounds

  • Principles of effective instruction and Socratic questioning  

  • Teaching to automaticity and early identification and intervention

 

  • Audience:

    • Pre-k through 2nd grade

    • Intermediate Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventionists

    • Special Education staff

  • Location: Open enrollment courses along Colorado’s front range

  • In school trainings available!

  • 6 CEUs
