Extra Practice for Struggling Readers - Phonics
While phonics instruction is important for all readers, it is essential for older students whose underdeveloped reading skills impede content-area learning. This resource offers dozens of practice pages that give struggling readers multiple opportunities to recognize, review, and reinforce must-know phonics elements, such as consonants, long and short vowels, blends, digraphs, and more. With this practice, students dramatically improve their ability to recognize sound-spelling relationships and use these skills to accurately and efficiently decode words, which in turn boosts fluency and comprehension.
Featuring over 24 lessons, each of these focused-skill Scholastic workbooks builds and hones specific reading skills. Though the series targets “struggling readers,” each will benefit any reader as they develop skills. Each book introduces the specified concept, provides examples, then follows with exercises to practice concepts. Books provide brief teaching tips and answers. Students who need reinforcement with CVC and digraph words will benefit from the Phonics workbook. High-Frequency Words works through 240 essential sight words. Word Families teach prefixes and suffixes, Latin and Greek roots, plurals and more. Nonreproducible, 80 pgs, pb. ~Ruth
