  2. 2. A IS FOR.....  Alliteration – is a technique used to emphasize phonemes. This can be accomplished by using many words that have the same consonant sound or letter. Example – Tongue Twisters
  3. 3. B IS FOR…..  Bottom-Up Approach – “Parts to the whole”, This approach begins with phonemes and graphemes and continues by expanding to the syllable, words, sentences, paragraphs, and then whole reading selections. In other words – Phonics Instruction
  4. 4. C IS FOR…..  “Clues” Clues for Decoding – Context Clues are use to help identify unknown words. There are also three main types of contexts clues Semantic, Syntactic, and Structural. Semantic Clues (thinking) – requires student to think of the meaning of the word. Syntactic Clues (order) – requires the student to use the order of words in the sentence. Structural Clues (built) – requires the student to pay attention to the letter groups, many groups of letters frequently occur with in words. Example – Prefixes – pre, anti, and sub
  5. 5. D IS FOR…..  Dolch Words – “sight words” or frequently used words in the English language. If students are exposed to the words and learn to recognize them as sight words, they will become more fluent readers.
  6. 6. E IS FOR…..  Emergent Readers – understand that print contains meaningful information. These students imitate the reading process and display basic reading readiness skills. -Eye Movement – top to bottom and left to right -Participate in shared reading activities -Follow and match words -Use illustrations to support text
  7. 7. F IS FOR…..  Full Alphabetic Stage – Students begin making connections between the letters, the sounds they represent, and the actual meaning of the word. Students begin to “Crack the Code” of the written language.
  8. 8. G IS FOR…..  Graphemes – or “letters”. Graph  made up of lines and dots. Line and dots form letters. Therefor – a graph is made up of lines and dots so, Graphemes means letters.

  11. 11. J IS FOR…..  Journals – writing in journals provide students with opportunities to use language authentically in literary contexts.
  12. 12. K IS FOR…..  Knowledge – activating prior knowledge lets readers pay more attention because they can relate to the text. Students receive a better understanding of the text if they can make connections between text, their lives, and the larger world. You can address this by – K-W-L’s, Reflecting, and Confirming Prediction only to name a few.
  13. 13. L IS FOR…..  Lexicon – refers to the vocabulary of a language. Meaning of words change based on context and its historical framework. Vocabulary is said to be one of the most variable and rich components of language.
  14. 14. M IS FOR…..  Morphemes – are the smallest representation of the meaning of a word.
  15. 15. N IS FOR…..  Newly Fluent Readers - can read with relative fluency and comprehension.  Ability to use several cuing systems  Sematic, Structural, Visual, and Grapho-Phonemic Cuing Systems cuing systems.
  16. 16. O IS FOR…..  Observation – teachers should use observations during individual or group work. Teachers can make a checklist of competencies, skills, or requirements then uses the list to check off the skills the students or group displays.
  17. 17. P IS FOR…..  Phonology – is the study of the sound system of a language.
  18. 18. Q IS FOR…..  Questions – comprehensive questions can begin at reading level of the student and continue to increase in complexity until the student is not able to respond to the comprehension questions.
  19. 19. R IS FOR…..  Readers Theater – used to emphasize reading fluency. A story is modified so that various characters have to read portion of the text. Students rehearse their reading part and then create a theater format to present the reading.
  20. 20. S IS FOR…..  Syllabication – refers to the ability to conceptualize and separate words into their basic syllables.
  21. 21. T IS FOR…..  Top Down Approach – begins with the whole and then proceeds to its individual parts.  Whole stories, paragraphs, sentences, words and then proceeds to the smallest units of syllables, graphemes, and phonemes.
  22. 22. U IS FOR…..  Using – Using parts of a book such as the charts, diagrams, indexes, and tables of contents to improve their understanding of the reading content.
  23. 23. V IS FOR…..  Visualizing – active readers create visual images based on the words they read in the text. These created pictures in turn enhance readers’ understanding.
  24. 24. W IS FOR…..  Whole Language Approach – More than graphic information the whole language approach relies on the structure and meaning of the language.  Teachers can help this by reading and rereading texts to children  Teachers must have a sharp emphasis on phonics will skill-based approaches to reading.
  25. 25. X IS FOR…..  SuffiX & AffiX & PrefiX– Affix is commonly a suffix or attached to a base word, stem, or root. Suffix is an affix attached to the end of a base word or word root. Prefix comes at the beginning of a word.
