As a literacy coach, I visit many schools supporting teachers in their journey implementing literacy programs using the ‘Science of Teaching Reading’ methodologies.
Last week I was chatting with Prep staff at one particular school. They were mentioning how quickly most of the children were progressing, already blending and segmenting words successfully and transferring this to reading and writing. However, there were still a small group of students in each class that they felt were progressing a lot slower. They asked some great questions like….
‘What skills should students have by now?’
‘What should we do for these students?’
‘When and how should we be assessing them?’
‘When should we provide withdrawal intervention?’
Join me in Episode #36 and #37 as I unpack the crucial strategies of Phonemic Awareness. I'll show you how to identify deficits and give you some practical strategies to implement with your vulnerable students.
