Phonics Guide for Reading & Spelling: First Grade Sample

The First Grade Phonics Guide for Reading & Spelling is a daily road map for you, the teacher, to use when teaching your early learner the phonics of both reading and spelling.

Making the transition from phonics and phonetic readers to non-phonetic readers is one of the more delicate aspects of reading instruction. The First Grade Phonics Guide for Reading & Spelling begins with a Phonics Overview for the teacher, a thorough grounding in the “ABC’s and all their tricks.” English is the most irregular of any of the modern Western languages. Because of the complexity of spelling patterns in English, it is helpful for the teacher to have this overview as a guide and reference.
