1 Chapter 6: PHONICS Jan Hughes

2 WHAT Phonics is the instruction of the relationship between letters and the sounds they represent Phonics is the instruction of the relationship between letters and the sounds they represent Decoding is the ability to convert a word from print to speech Decoding is the ability to convert a word from print to speech Alphabetic Principle is the understanding that written letters represent spoken sounds and that sounds go together to make words Alphabetic Principle is the understanding that written letters represent spoken sounds and that sounds go together to make words

3 PHONICS Phonics is a method of instruction that teaches the relationship between letters and letter combinations (graphemes) in written language and the individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken language and how to use these relationships to read and spell words. Phonics is a method of instruction that teaches the relationship between letters and letter combinations (graphemes) in written language and the individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken language and how to use these relationships to read and spell words.

4 SYSTEMATIC AND EXPLICIT PHONICS INSTRUCTION Systematic Phonics Instruction: teaches sound/spelling relationships in a logical instructional sequence Systematic Phonics Instruction: teaches sound/spelling relationships in a logical instructional sequence Explicit Phonics Instruction: teaches concepts that are clearly explained and modeled Explicit Phonics Instruction: teaches concepts that are clearly explained and modeled

5 PHONICS INSTRUCTION Systematic and Explicit Phonics Instruction Systematic and Explicit Phonics Instruction Improves students reading and spelling in kindergarten and grade 1. Improves students reading and spelling in kindergarten and grade 1. Improves students ability to comprehend Improves students ability to comprehend Helps prevent reading difficulties among at-risk students Helps prevent reading difficulties among at-risk students Helps students who have difficulty learning to read Helps students who have difficulty learning to read

6 APPROACHES TO PHONICS INSTRUCTION Synthetic phonics Synthetic phonics Transforming letters and letter combinations into sounds and then blending the sounds together to form words. Transforming letters and letter combinations into sounds and then blending the sounds together to form words. Analogy Phonics Analogy Phonics Using a rime in a familiar word to identify an unfamiliar word having that same rime. Using a rime in a familiar word to identify an unfamiliar word having that same rime. Example: use ick in a familiar word to teach unfamiliar words such as brick, trick etc. Example: use ick in a familiar word to teach unfamiliar words such as brick, trick etc. Analytic Phonics Analytic Phonics Identify familiar words and then introduce a sound/spelling relationship within that word. Identify familiar words and then introduce a sound/spelling relationship within that word. Example: identify the middle sound of mat and use other words with this such as fan, tan, bag. Example: identify the middle sound of mat and use other words with this such as fan, tan, bag. Embedded Phonics Embedded Phonics Phonics instruction is embedded in the context of reading and writing experience. Phonics instruction is embedded in the context of reading and writing experience. These skills include using context, pictures, familiar word parts and the first and last letter of words. These skills include using context, pictures, familiar word parts and the first and last letter of words.

7 GOOD PHONICS INSTRUCTION Develops understanding of the alphabetic principle (relationship between letters and sounds in words). Develops understanding of the alphabetic principle (relationship between letters and sounds in words). Incorporates phonemic awareness Incorporates phonemic awareness Provides practice in reading words Provides practice in reading words Leads to automatic word recognition Leads to automatic word recognition Only one part of a comprehensive reading program Only one part of a comprehensive reading program

8 Effective Instructional Techniques Provide immediate corrective feedback and model correct response Provide immediate corrective feedback and model correct response Monitor students to make sure they are paying attention and responding correctly Monitor students to make sure they are paying attention and responding correctly Lively pacing to keep students attentive Lively pacing to keep students attentive Signaling to have students talk in unison Signaling to have students talk in unison

9 PHONICS SCOPE AND SEQUENCE Guidelines when evaluating a reading program Guidelines when evaluating a reading program –Should introduce sound/spelling that occur in most words –High-utility sound/spellings –Progress from simple to more complex –Single consonant and short vowel should be introduced early –Letters with easy to pronounce sounds first –Letters having similar sounds and shape should be separated

10 GENERAL SEQUENCE FOR TEACHING PHONICS When choosing a Reading program When choosing a Reading program –Look for a systematic sequence Single consonants/short vowel Single consonants/short vowel Consonant diagraph Consonant diagraph Long vowel with silent e (CVCe) Long vowel with silent e (CVCe) Y as a vowel Y as a vowel R-controlled vowels R-controlled vowels Silent consonants Silent consonants Vowel diagraphs Vowel diagraphs Variant vowel diagraphs/dipthongs Variant vowel diagraphs/dipthongs

11 DECODING REGULAR WORDS Regular words are words in which each letter represents its more common sound Regular words are words in which each letter represents its more common sound –Struggling readers need to sound out words orally and move to recognizing words automatically –Words beginning with a continuous sound are easiest for students to blend (i.e. at and map) –Words with beginning stop sounds are harder to blend (i.e. dog and bag) –Start with the easiest to blend and then move on to harder blend words

12 BLENDING ROUTINES Sound by sound blending Sound by sound blending Continuous blending Continuous blending Whole word blending Whole word blending Spelling-focused blending Spelling-focused blending –Pages 181-182 examples

13 AUTOMATIC WORD RECOGNITION Several sub skills are required to develop word recognition Several sub skills are required to develop word recognition –Being able to identify letters and sounds quickly –Being fluent in phonics decoding –must have the automatic word recognition skills for reading fluently, which is an essential skill for comprehension

14 TEXT TYPES Decodable Text Decodable Text –Reading practice material in which the majority of words are linked to phonics instruction using sound/spelling relationships and spelling patterns students have been taught Predictable/patterned text Predictable/patterned text –Repetitive or cumulative text patterns –Match text to illustrations Authentic text Authentic text –Literature trade books in different genres

15 DECODABLE TEXT ANALYSIS Wholly decodable words Wholly decodable words –Word that can be identified on the basis of sound/spelling relationships and spelling patterns previously taught Irregular words Irregular words –High frequency and story words that were taught previously Non decodable words Non decodable words –Words that are not wholly decodable or previously taught sight words

16 PHONOGRAMS A phonogram is a letter or series of letters that stand for a sound, syllable, syllable part, or series of sounds A phonogram is a letter or series of letters that stand for a sound, syllable, syllable part, or series of sounds –Phonograms should not be the sole focus of early reading instruction –Phonograms should build on knowledge gained from systematic and explicit phonics instruction –Knowing phonograms should be included in instruction –Knowing phonograms is a critical step to decoding chunks of words

17 WORD WORK: ENCODING AND DECODING Word sorting Word sorting –Grouping words according to categories to show similarities or differences Kinds of word sorts Kinds of word sorts Closedteacher defines words and models sorting Closedteacher defines words and models sorting Openstudent defines words and pictures Openstudent defines words and pictures Blindteacher defines key word and calls out a word (students do not see). Students point to key word with same sound Blindteacher defines key word and calls out a word (students do not see). Students point to key word with same sound Writingteacher calls out word and student writes word below the key word that has the same sound/spelling pattern Writingteacher calls out word and student writes word below the key word that has the same sound/spelling pattern Speedclosed, open, blind, writing are completed in a particular time frame Speedclosed, open, blind, writing are completed in a particular time frame

18 WORD WORK: ENCODING AND DECODING Elkonin boxes with letters Elkonin boxes with letters –Helps develop phonemic awareness –Students segment words using chips to represent sounds –Helps bridge the connection between phonemes and graphemes Word building Word building –The effects on a word when changing one letter –Words are transformed by substituting, inserting, or deleting letters –Each word is different than the previous word by one letter

19 WORD WORK: ENCODING AND DECODING Dictation Dictation –Sound by sound dictation Teacher dictates word to student one sound at a time Teacher dictates word to student one sound at a time –Whole word dictation Students are prompted to think about the sounds they hear in the words and write the entire word Students are prompted to think about the sounds they hear in the words and write the entire word

20 WHY Systematic phonics instruction helps students learn to read more effectively than nonsystematic phonics or no phonics instruction Systematic phonics instruction helps students learn to read more effectively than nonsystematic phonics or no phonics instruction National Reading Panel 2000 National Reading Panel 2000

21 WHY Based on numerous studies, it has been confirmed that phonics instruction is the best and most efficient way to teach alphabetic principles Based on numerous studies, it has been confirmed that phonics instruction is the best and most efficient way to teach alphabetic principles Less mental energy is used to decode the words and more energy can be devoted to comprehension Less mental energy is used to decode the words and more energy can be devoted to comprehension

22 WHEN TO TEACH Phonics instruction has the greatest impact on beginning reader in kindergarten and first grade Phonics instruction has the greatest impact on beginning reader in kindergarten and first grade Students who dont master or become fluent in phonics skills by the end of first grade continue to struggle in the future in other areas of reading Students who dont master or become fluent in phonics skills by the end of first grade continue to struggle in the future in other areas of reading –Torgesen et. al. (2001) Researchers suggest about two years of phonics instruction Researchers suggest about two years of phonics instruction Pacing is contingent on student mastery Pacing is contingent on student mastery

23 WHEN TO ASSESS AND INTERVENE Intervention should begin in kindergarten and first grade as soon as a reading problem is identified through assessment Intervention should begin in kindergarten and first grade as soon as a reading problem is identified through assessment Assessment should include phonemic awareness, sound/spelling correspondence, decoding, and use of nonsense words Assessment should include phonemic awareness, sound/spelling correspondence, decoding, and use of nonsense words

24 OLDER STRUGGLING READERS Intensive intervention is critical Intensive intervention is critical Some weak readers will need basic phonics instruction and phonemic awareness Some weak readers will need basic phonics instruction and phonemic awareness Some will need word attack skills Some will need word attack skills For older readers, assessment and instruction should include more advanced morphological and orthographic knowledge For older readers, assessment and instruction should include more advanced morphological and orthographic knowledge

25 HOW? Integrated Picture Mnemonics Letter-sound strategy Letter-sound strategy –Letter names and sounds can be taught together Teach/Model Teach/Model Connect an integrated picture to the letter sound Connect an integrated picture to the letter sound make a copy of the picture. make a copy of the picture. Trace the letter and make it into a picture Trace the letter and make it into a picture Write the letter and connect it to the picture name Write the letter and connect it to the picture name Practice and commit to memory Practice and commit to memory.

31 CONCLUSION WHAT: WHAT: The aim of phonics instruction is to help children acquire alphabetic knowledge and use it to read and spell words. The aim of phonics instruction is to help children acquire alphabetic knowledge and use it to read and spell words. --Ehri, 2006 --Ehri, 2006

32 CONCLUSION WHY: WHY: The English language is an alphabetic language in which there are consistent though not entirely predictable relationships between letters and sounds The English language is an alphabetic language in which there are consistent though not entirely predictable relationships between letters and sounds Anderson et al., 1985 Anderson et al., 1985 Phonics instruction increases the ability to comprehend text for beginning readers and older students with disabilities Phonics instruction increases the ability to comprehend text for beginning readers and older students with disabilities National reading panel 2000 National reading panel 2000

33 CONCLUSION WHEN? WHEN? The right maxims for phonics are: Do it early. Keep it simple. Anderson et al., 1985

34 CONCLUSION HOW HOW Use lessons that are research based Use lessons that are research based Use the correct model for what you would like to teach Use the correct model for what you would like to teach Keep it interesting! Keep it interesting! –Phonics instruction need not be boring, especially if the instruction is kept brisk, to the point, and does not take an excessive amount of time each day. –Stahl, Duffy-Hester & Stahl, 1998
