PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

PHONEMIC AWARENESS

January 21, 2022

One of the two greatest predictors of reading success, phonemic awareness is essential in the path towards becoming a successful reader. Struggling readers often have deficits in this area, and extensive research has proven that proficiency in phonemic awareness is attainable when implemented correctly by a knowledgable teacher. This training is crucial for preschool teachers, kindergarten teachers, and reading interventionists.

ALPHABET SKILLS

If a child cannot quickly and correctly name the letters of the alphabet, new information will likely be stored incorrectly in the long-term memory. Sequencing and identification of the alphabet is fun and interactive in this one-day training that will equip teachers with the knowledge and skill to immediately implement in the classroom. Alphabet Skills is an indespensible class for parents, preschool teachers, kindergarten teachers, and reading interventionists.

Once a struggling reader is confident in the letters of the alphabet and can successfully manipulate sounds, the next step is to begin to learn the sounds associated with the letters of English. These students require explicit instruction in vowel types, syllable division patterns, and a multisensory approach to decoding words. This class is essential for reading interventionists and primary teachers.
