Phonological Awareness and Phonics activities

Phonological Awareness and Phonics activities present foundational reading skills in an age-appropriate interface. Activities include basic sound-symbol correspondence for consonants, short vowels, and digraphs as well as developing awareness of the six-syllable types. Engaging with these activities helps students reinforce their awareness of sounds in words as well as their decoding and word-attack skills.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary is addressed using systematic structural analysis to help students develop their knowledge of word meanings, with activities that teach the meanings of Anglo-Saxon and Latin prefixes and roots, as well as Greek combining forms.  The activities incorporate high-utility words and academic vocabulary appropriate for older students.

Fluency 

Fluency development includes work on developing automaticity and fluency through timed components that increase speed of processing. Students are provided with the opportunity to hear paragraphs read aloud, modeling appropriate prosody and oral reading fluency as they practice.

Comprehension

Comprehension development encompasses the comprehension of words, phrases, sentences, and paragraphs with the use of pictures that provide visual cues, and activities that require categorizing and making associations based on meaning.  Additional activities utilize cloze procedure tasks to help students learn to monitor for meaning as they read connected text.
