Full Description

Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study Lessons, Grade 1, provides 100 concise lessons driven by clear language principles from The Fountas & Pinnell Comprehensive Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study Guide. The lessons help children attend to, learn about, and efficiently use sounds, letters, and words out of text and as they read and write. Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study Lessons, Grade 1 also includes features that enable you to plan and teach efficiently and systematically:

  • Explicit lessons with materials appropriate for whole-group instruction (5-10 minutes) and for individual, partners, or small-group application (10-15 minutes)ƒ
  • Master Lesson Guide: Suggested Sequence for Phonics Lessons: a convenient chart for planning and extending learning across the yearƒ
  • Organization by nine areas of learning—Early Literacy Concepts, Phonological Awareness, Letter Knowledge, Letter-Sound Relationships, Spelling Patterns, High-Frequency Words, Word Meaning/Vocabulary, Word Structure, and Word-Solving Actionsƒ
  • Inquiry approach that encourages children to construct understandings and notice more about sounds, letters, and wordsƒ
  • Specific connections to Sing a Song of Poetry, to Words That Sing: 100 Poetry Charts for Shared Reading, and to Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Interactive Read-Aloud Collection and Shared Reading Collection titles as mentor texts and examples for generalizing and applying principlesƒ
  • Guidance for assessing children’s learning
  • Ready Resources – Ready-to-use, pre-printed materials for Phonics, Spelling, and Word Study Lessons. Ready Resources in Grade 1 includes items such as word lists, posters, categorized, general pocket-chart cards for tailoring lessons, lesson-specific pocket-chart cards, and blank, dry-erase pocket-chart cards. All Ready Resources items can be found in the Ready Resources shipper box.
  • Online Resources – A treasure-trove of printable materials including lesson-specific and general letter, word, and picture cards, sorting sheets, gameboards, the Master Lesson Guide: A Suggested Sequence for Phonics Lessons, a digital version of every material found in Ready Resources, and more! In Online Resources you will also find Getting Started and Unpacking videos, the Assessment Guide, and Gamemaker, an easy-to-use digital tool for quickly creating games.

Each of the nine areas of learning are represented in the lessons. As the lessons are implemented, teachers will not only learn more about children’s development of word-solving strategies but also gain invaluable insight into the English linguistic system. The goal is for teachers to feel confident in building their own sequence of explicit lessons that moves students systematically toward a flexible and powerful range of strategies. The minilessons within the system are designed so that as teachers use them, they will always consider the child.
