Although human beings don't experience the metamorphosis that characterizes the life of a caterpillar, the transformation that happens during kindergarten is no less astonishing. Many of your children start their year holding books upside down and backwards and making letters look like squiggles, and then end the year reading and writing for their own important purposes. Phonics instruction is at the center of this transformation.

First-grade phonics is all-important. In this one year, students are expected to make the growth that enables them to go from reading little books comprised of just a few pages to reading early chapter books. In writing, too, there are ambitious expectations—children are asked to go from writing a few lines on a couple of pages to writing books with chapters—filling up multiple lines on a page and organizing their writing into sections.

The growth that second graders experience over the course of a year is incredible. Students start the year writing four or five sentences per page and end the year with ten or twelve sentences filling up a multi-page booklet. In reading, they go from reading early chapter books like Fly Guy to longer, more complicated books like Magic Treehouse. It’s the year that most kids get hooked on a series, fall in love with characters, and follow them on all sorts of adventures. Second-grade phonics is about closing the gap between what kids can read and what they can write conventionally.
