Building the Foundation - A Suggested Progression of Sub-skills to Achieve the Reading Standards: Foundational Skills in the Common Core State Standards
Read the Fine Print
Rating

This document is based on an analysis that determined the sub-skills students need to achieve in each of the Foundational Skills (K–5) in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). It contains five sections, each targeting one grade level in: Print Concepts, Phonological Awareness, Phonics and Word Recognition, and Fluency. It also includes instructional examples aligned to the sub-skills, giving teachers samples of activity types that facilitate acquisition of the sub-skills. Each chart includes up to three grade levels to inform instruction for students who are either struggling and need extra support or intervention, or for students performing above grade-level expectations and require enrichment, to allow a teacher to see which skills should have been mastered in the previous year and what students are preparing for in the upcoming years.

The purpose of this document is to give you the resources you need to teach first grade students the phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, and sight-word-recognition skills that will empower them to become confident, competent and thoughtful readers and writers. Instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, and sight words can and should be fun, fast-paced, and brief. The lessons in this document are designed with that in mind.

Highline Public Schools Intermediate Word Study Differentiation Guide
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

While we hope that most students have mastered basic decoding skills by grade three, some students will need additional support. The purpose of this guide is to provide resources for you to assess and differentiate for students’ needs in phonics, sight word recognition, fluency, and phonemic awareness. This will help students to meet the foundational standards in the Common Core, to meet reading standard 10 (independently read complex text at grade level), and most importantly, to become successful readers and scholars. The primary goal of the instructional activities in this guide is to support students in developing proficiency and automaticity with decoding skills. Decoding (reading) and encoding (writing) are closely related skills, and the activities in this guide address both. Because of the pivotal and primary role reading plays in academic success, you will want to pay particularly close attention to students’ proficiency with decoding and fluency.

As a teacher of students in third grade or beyond, you won’t want to provide whole-class phonics instruction – though more advanced word study such as word analysis should be a part of your curriculum. Rather, you’ll want to identify the needs of individual students and meet those needs through small group and individual instruction. This is because many of your students will already have mastered the phonics skills they need.

Percussionist Steven Angel has developed an innovative program that uses rhythm to help struggling students improve their reading fluency and comprehension. Deceptively simple -- a facilitator taps out a basic rhythm while students read aloud -- the method relaxes students, helps them focus, and is effective in after-school intervention programs as well as traditional classrooms.
