Sound it Out!: Phonics in a Balanced Reading Program
Are you interested in a phonics program that is part of a balanced reading program? Rather than treating phonics as an end in itself, this brief yet comprehensive book shows how phonics fits into the overall process of a child's learning to read. It helps students understand how phonics can be integrated successfully into an effective classroom reading program. While it includes a wealth of suggestions for practical classroom applications, the book has a solid research knowledge base so that students will understand what they are doing and why they are doing it in the classroom. The text includes information about all types of phonics programs and many different approaches to teaching phonics for reading and spelling.
