This full-year PhonicsWorks Advanced Phonics kit provides a comprehensive approach to teaching reading and literacy skills, building upon the sold-separately Basic Phonics Kit. Phonological awareness activities are emphasized to help children distinguish and manipulate sounds as the discover letters using a multisensory approach. Ensure that your students can recognize the relationship between letters and sounds; blend sounds into words; read and spell longer, unfamiliar words by breaking them into syllables, and read "sight words."
This Advanced Phonics kit includes the following components:
The core of this program is the K92 PhonicsWorks tile kit, which contains letters and letter combinations that represent sounds. Children use the magnetized tiles to manipulate sounds and letters in fun activities that combine visual, auditory, tactile, and oral learning, helping children understand how speech is represented in print.
The teacher's guide CD-ROM supplements the Phonics 1 student pages with detailed teacher instructions and step-by-step guidance; each lesson is organized by unit and placed in the order you'll use them. Assessment answer keys follow each unit.
Two "Phonics 1" student books are divided between two semesters and provide practice activities and assessments that help children move beyond phonological awareness to spelling activities, patterns, and sight words.
PhonicsWorks Readers 10-30 and a set of Advanced Phonics flashcards are included.
