Each phonics workshop lesson or activity takes 20 minutes to complete. The first lesson is teacher-led and uses phonics cards (provided as digital masters for you to copy and cut). The begins the second, third, and fourth lessons begin with review and assign activity-based worksheets. Students complete the worksheets collaboratively and self-correct to learn from their mistakes. The fifth lesson is the formative assessment, administered individually (takes less than a minute per student). When students are finished with each of the five lessons, they continue to practice the phonics workshop with word making activities.
