The Big Five Ideas In ReadingPhonemic AwarenessPhonemic Awareness includes:RhymingIsolating SoundsSound ManipulationSegmenting of SoundsBlending of SoundsWhat is phoneme segmentation?The ability to break down words into individual soundsThis skill is done without printBlack: /b/ /l/ /a/ /k/

PhonicsPhonics is the idea that letters represent sounds and the sounds go together to make wordsPhonics includes basic and advanced codeBasic code means that each sound is represented by one letter (dog)Includes only short vowel soundsAdvanced code means that more than one letter can represent one sound (coat)Includes short and long vowel soundsWhy Nonsense Words?Nonsense words show that students are using their letter-sound knowledge to accurately decode and blend words

Nonsense words ensure that a student hasnt memorized common words such as cat and top by sight.Order Of Development For Basic CodeCV, VCco, at

hopetoepokecrowthoughWhat Is Fluency?

A nonfluent reader puts a large amount of effort into decoding words. By the time such a reader finishes a sentence, he or she may forget what the sentence was even about. Comprehension is blocked because the process of decoding takes so much time and effort the short-term memory cant grasp the fragmented input of information.By contrast, a fluent reader reads in smooth and continuous phrases and the brain can retain and comprehend what is read.www.k12reader.comWhy Is Fluency Important?While fluency alone will not guarantee strong reading comprehension skills, it is absolutely a necessary component.

Not only is fluency important to oral reading, but successful silent reading requires fluent reading as well.

Why Is Fluency Important?Repeated ReadingStudent reads new passage while being timed for one minuteStudent counts how many words were read and subtracts the number of errorsThis is referred to as a cold scoreStudent graphs the number of words read correctly and colors with a blue crayonGo over incorrect words with studentHow To Improve FluencyRepeated Reading ContinuedStudent reads the same passage again, and again, and again, while being timed for one minuteAfter the student has read many times and is able to use good accuracy, rate, expression, and punctuation, they are ready for their hot scoreStudent reads the passage a final time while being timed for one minute and graphs the number of words read correctlyStudent colors their hot score in red

How To Improve Fluency

Partner ReadingTake turns reading a sentence or page

Choral ReadingRead out loud together at the same time

Echo ReadingOne person reads then the other person echoes the sentence that was just readWays To Do Repeated ReadingDemonstration of each given by Mia & Nicole43Reading in different voices
