  • Phonics and Fluency Paola Pilonieta, Ph.D.

  • Slide 6
  • What else can do I do when a child cant figure out the word? 6
  • Slide 7
  • Prompting Prompting is what the teacher says when a child cant decode a word. Start by offering the least support possible. Move from general prompts to more specific prompts. 7
  • Slide 8
  • General Prompts When the child notices the error: Ask: What can you do to figure out that word? When the child doesnt notice the error: Give the child a few seconds to notice. Ask: Does that make sense? 8
  • Slide 9
  • Specific Prompts: Use when general prompts dont work Can you sound it out? Are there parts of the word that you know? (chunking) Can the pictures help you? Point to the part of the word with which they are struggling, ask: What letter is this? What sound does that letter make? 9

  • Prompting vs. Telling Prompt when: the word can be sounded out. you have practiced similar words with the child. Tell when: the word is too hard. the word is impossible to sound out (ex: ocean). 11 Offer 1-2 quick prompts. If the child still cant figure it out, tell them the word and move on.

Player 2 writes a word from the ig family on any empty space he chooses on the board. Play continues until someone has 3 words from their word family in a row.

  • Word Chains Have learner look for words that belong in the same word family in a book or think of their own words. Have the learner write the words on construction paper strips. Tape or staple the ends of the strips into a circle, linking the circles with one another to form a chain. 19

  • Slide 25
  • 25 Words You Know Words you know is an activity that helps students see that you can use words you know to figure out words you dont know! Choose 3-4 words the student knows and identify the spelling patterns in those words. Have the learner make a chart on their paper. Head the columns with the words you know and underline the spelling pattern. Show the learner some words on an index card. Have them read the word and write it in the correct column. Say some words. Have the learner decide where to write them on their paper.

  • Fluency 31
  • Slide 32
  • What is fluency? Fluency is the ability to read accurately, quickly, effortlessly, and with appropriate expression and meaning. There are three components to fluency: 1.Accuracy 2.Expression 3.Speed 32
  • Slide 33
  • Timed Repeated Reading Ideal for students who read accurately, but slowly. Procedure 1 st reading Choose a passage between 100-150 words that is not too hard for the learner. Say to the learner, Doing your best reading, please read aloud this passage to me with expression and at a good, even pace. Time the learner while he is reading. While the learner is reading, keep track of how many errors he or she made. Review their performance. 33
  • Slide 34
  • Timed Repeated Reading Procedure Subsequent Readings Set a reasonable goal for the next tutoring session. You can expect the child to read 2-3 words more per minute Practice reading the passage one more time that session. Encourage the learner to practice reading the passage at least one time every day until you see him or her again. At the next tutoring session time the learner while he or she reads the passage. 34
  • Slide 35
  • Readers Theatre Ideal for students who need to improve their expression. Students read a script (rather than memorize it). Emphasis is placed on expression, not on props, costumes, or acting 35
  • Slide 36
  • Readers Theatre Procedures Select a script http://it.pinellas.k12.fl.us/Teachers3/gurianb/ReadersTheater.htm Read the script with the student the first time (read all roles together). Check that the student understood the plot. Choose roles and read the script like a play. Repeat as desired. 36
