Adding Encoding to Phonics Lessons

October 12, 2023
5:00 p.m.–6:30 p.m. ET

Incorporating daily spelling practice within phonics lessons enhances students’ understanding of the intricate relationships between sounds and letters—which enriches their phonemic awareness, decoding abilities, vocabulary, writing skills, and overall language proficiency. In this session, Wiley Blevins will lead attendees through multiple ways to add and differentiate spelling during their phonics lessons, including dictation, word building, word sorts, and writing about decodable texts. Participants will learn strategies to help build a comprehensive approach to literacy and language development that will promote deeper understanding and engagement in their classroom.

You’ll walk away with ideas for what to do with the existing books in your classroom—and how adding decodables can help develop stronger early reading behaviors, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing skills.

Who should register: Classroom teachers, literacy/instructional coaches, reading/literacy specialists, literacy supervisors/coordinators, instructional leads, teacher educators, and principals
