High quality literacy instruction provides all students with a solid foundation for building strong reading skills. This session will outline the typical development of literacy skills and signs of a possible reading disability in Kindergarten to Grade 3 students. An explicit and multi-sensory approach to instruction focused on the development of solid phonemic awareness and phonics skills will be introduced. Fluency, vocabulary and comprehension instruction will also be discussed. Classroom based support for at-risk students will also be presented. Teachers will have opportunities for hands-on practice as well as receive access to additional materials.
