There are various aspects of literacy and it is important to begin developing instructional strategies to introduce these literacy concepts. It is crucial to examine multiple instructional and differentiation strategies in order to implement standards-based concepts related to phonics and word recognition.
Part 1: Phonics and Word Recognition Chart
Using the “Literacy Toolkit 1: Phonics and Word Recognition” template, choose a K-3 grade level and identify three standards related to phonics and word recognition.
For each standard chosen:
- Identify an aligned instructional strategy.
- Describe how you would differentiate the strategy to accommodate student needs.
- Identify materials, including digital tools and resources needed to create relevant learning experiences and promote student learning.
Part 2: Phonics and Word Recognition Reflection
Using the “Literacy Toolkit 1: Phonics and Word Recognition” template, summarize and reflect, in 250-500 words, on the strategies and aligned differentiation you would use to inform your instruction of phonics and word recognition standards. How do the materials, including digital tools and resources, chosen to implement your strategies address the various needs and provide equitable access to all students? Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
Submit your “Literacy Toolkit 1: Phonics and Word Recognition” template and reflection as one deliverable.
This completed assignment will be the first part of your Literacy Toolkit and will inform your assignment in Topic 6.
Support your findings with 3-5 scholarly resources.
