“It is critical for teachers to understand that systematic, phonics instruction can be provided in an entertaining, vibrant and creative manner.”
- Excerpt from the National Reading Panel
BUILDING A SOLID READING FOUNDATION
The English language has five basic vowels (a, e, i, o, u) that make a total of 18 different sounds. The vowel sounds are the hardest part of learning to read, but all those vowel sounds must be mastered before becoming a successful reader. Without a solid understanding of phonics; strong vocabulary, fluency and comprehension are difficult to achieve. This is why strong phonetic instruction is so critical to academic success!
Voweletics builds a solid foundation by consolidating the phonetic code into three simple rules. These rules form the structure for decoding any word and are placed on one chart - the SMART CHART. Each lesson focuses on a component from this chart that readers use for reference until mastery is achieved.
ALIGNING WITH STANDARDS
64% of 4th Graders in America read BELOW grade level proficiency. In a classroom with 20 students, that's fewer than 8 children reading with ease.
The US Department of Education formed the National Reading Panel in 1997 to study and determine the most effective way to teach reading.
Voweletics aligns with these standards for effective reading instruction. Voweletics teaches, assess and tracks foundational reading skills for grades Kindergarten - 2nd. It works in tandem with guided reading and core reading programs.
CULTIVATING A JOYFUL EXPERIENCE
Teachers enjoy teaching Voweletics as much as children enjoy learning Voweletics!
