Reading & Phonics through Spelling
Reading & Phonics through Spelling takes five essential components of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension – and systematically teaches students using a discovery and sound-based approach to phonics. Each week students will discover spelling patterns for different sounds using therapy methods in the class. Homework is completed each week using the A Reason For Spelling workbooks. This approach to reading and phonics gives a solid foundation while also using proven methods for students with dyslexia.
Level 1 Reading Phonics through Spelling is offered for students with a 2nd or 3rd grade reading and/or spelling level.
Level 2 Reading Phonics through Spelling is offered for students with a 3rd grade or above reading and/or spelling level.
