The purpose of the page is to give our students that extra practice in decoding. This page contains 1st and 2nd Grade sound, sound blend activities to match with Isabel Beck's Making Sense of Phonics and LEAD 21 Word Work Scope and Sequence. It also contains a clip on how to do the sound, sound, blend and making word activities as well. In addition, there are lists of books to go with word patterns. Feel free to add more to the wiki as you see fit.

    Abstract
    The Ankeny Community School District adopted a new core reading curriculum for the 2010-2011 school year. This came about because we needed a better way to embed comprehension strategies into our reading curriculum, as our data showed that was where we needed the improvements. Our core program, LEAD 21, does an excellent job teaching the seven main comprehension strategies in texts that are real-world relevant. I love that this program has made students think on a higher level. Already our tests scores have improved. However, no core reading program is ever completely perfect and the one issue that has come to our attention is it could do more with systematic decoding instruction for the learners who fall out in the intensive and strategic range, especially in grades K-2. One way we’ve remedied this issue is providing explicit decoding instruction using Isabel Beck’s Making Sense of Phonics, and tying it together with LEAD’s Word Work and Phonics continuum. We do what are called “sound, sound blend” actions using the word families/phonics that are part of the LEAD program, along with word building activities that Isabel Beck suggests in her book. We also are tying the pieces together by reading texts that have these patterns in them, so the students are applying the knowledge back to books.
