The role of early morphological instruction and the importance of multi-linguistic (sounds-letters-meaning) instruction is highlighted by current research findings and in current models of reading and writing including The Language Literacy Network. It’s critical that these semantic, morphological, and morphological-syntactic components be fully integrated with phonics instruction beginning in the very early grades.
Speech-to-print phonics instruction is supported by current research and is becoming more widely used, but where does meaning and morphology fit in? All students can benefit from a speech-to-print approach to reading, but it should include vocabulary and morphology instruction to maximize outcomes. This session will empower you with multi-linguistic speech-to-print structured literacy activities with a focus on vocabulary and morphology components.
Whether you’re a classroom teacher, classroom aide, literacy coach or consultant, or interventionist this course will empower you with specific, easy, and practical ideas that can have a large impact on students’ reading and spelling learning and performance. You’ll see how easy it is to make phonics instruction more effective with a speech-to-print tweak that includes an infusion of vocabulary and morphology. You’ll leave with ideas that you can immediately put into action to quickly observe positive changes in your students’ learning.
