Phonics Literacy Center (eBook)
What if you could remediate the phonics deficits of your below grade-level readers within a literacy center? You can! The Phonics Literacy Center Grades 4–8 has been designed by Mark Pennington, MA reading specialist, to help your students master their phonics deficits in the quickest possible time. Perfect for sight word readers, special education students with auditory processing challenges, EL and ELD students. Ideal for Response to Intervention Tiers 1 and 2. Program prep is minimal and set-up is simple. Answers are provided with each task and your students will do all the correcting to learn from their own mistakes.
The Phonics Literacy Center provides 5 collaborative lessons and activities for each of these phonics workshops: Short Vowel Sounds, Silent Final e, Consonant Digraphs, Consonant Blends, Long Vowels, Diphthongs, and r and l-controlled Vowels.

Each phonics workshop lesson or activity takes from 15–20 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.
The Phonics Literacy Center includes comprehensive diagnostic screening assessments to help you accurately place students and a mastery matrix to monitor their progress. The Vowel Sounds Phonics Assessment and the Consonant Sound Phonics Assessment (audio files provided) have been used in hundreds of classrooms to pinpoint areas of phonics mastery and deficits for each of your students. You will be able to flexibly group your students with specific phonics workshops so that your students will collaboratively practice only the phonics deficits they have not yet mastered. You, your students, and their parents will see measurable results after using the lessons and activities provided in this remedial literacy center.
