LEARNING TO CRACK THE CODE
Written by THRIVE Program Teacher, Tyson Schoeber • Last Updated: 09-23-2014
Phonics is a kind of instruction that seeks to help students to understand and use
the alphabetic principle to figure out words that they don't already know. The goal is to help students discover and master the predictable relationship between MOST of the sounds in words and the letters that are used to spell them.
As this understanding develops, students are empowered to
crack the code for themselves and they become able to read increasingly difficult text on their own. The learning of phonics is built into many parts of THRIVE's individualized academic programming.
The Academy of Reading
Just like the Drill Cards, this program does a very good job of teaching phonics. While it demands hard work, the improved reading skills you gain is definitely worth the price!
OUR Word Wall GRAPHICS
The colorful graphics we build for each new word that we add to our Word Wall are powerful tools that help kids to see phonics at work in complex words.
