Foundational & Comprehension Skills
Advancing the teaching of syllable types and syllable division strategies to promote the reading of all six syllable types in single and multisyllabic words including those with affixes
This phase completes the teaching of the six syllable types along with syllabic and morphemic word reading strategies. As the lessons progress, students will develop language and text comprehension skills by using close reading routines with text-dependent questions. Other oral/language activities promote fluent reading with accuracy, proper phrasing, and reading with expression, as well as the use of English grammar and standard English conventions, academic language, and vocabulary.
