LEER MAS Revised Alphabetic Principle What is it? Why is it important to literacy acquisition?
LEER MAS Revised Alphabetic Principle Understanding that the sequence of letters in written words represents the sequence of sounds (or phonemes) in spoken words
LEER MAS Revised Alphabetic Principle Includes Recognizing, naming, and producing the letters of the alphabet; Using letter-sound knowledge and syllables to decode written language; Using a variety of syllable strategies to read beginning reading texts; and Using letter-sound knowledge to move towards conventional spelling.
LEER MAS Revised Recognizing, Naming, and Producing the Letters of the Alphabet Rapidly and accurately identify letters of the alphabet both sequentially and randomly

LEER MAS Revised Letter-Sound Correspondence Instruction Is explicit and systematic, Presents initial instruction of vowels associated with syllables, Provides immediate clarification, and Progresses to blending syllables to read words.
LEER MAS Revised Guidelines for Teaching Letter-Sound Correspondence Teach more frequently-used letters and sounds Establish a logical order of introduction Begin with a productive sequence that permits making and reading syllables and then words as quickly as possible Separate the introduction of auditorily similar letter- sound correspondences Introduce a few letter-sound correspondences at a time Provide many opportunities for practice
LEER MAS Revised Word Study Strategies for Accurate and Fluent Decoding Blend together all of the syllables in a word Recognize high frequency words Use common spelling patterns Use common syllable patterns Use structural clues (compound words, base words, and inflections) Use knowledge of word order and context to support pronunciation and confirm word meaning
LEER MAS Revised Learning to Spell promotes letter-sound knowledge and phonological awareness. develops syllable-word knowledge. should be taught explicitly. Phonetic spelling enhances phonological awareness, accelerates conventional spelling, and reveals what students know about sounds and letters.
LEER MAS Revised Why is Alphabetic Principle Important? Understanding the alphabetic principle is key to learning to read in a language that is represented by an alphabet (Spanish and English). Research has demonstrated that Spanish successful readers rely primarily on syllable-word correspondences rather than context or pictures to identify familiar and unfamiliar words.
