Today was the first in service day for the 2015-16 school year! We spent 3 hours learning about Phonics Lessons: Letters, Words, and How They Work from Fountas & Pinnell.
It is a great book to use that focuses on teaching phonics through reading, writing, and fun games! The activities flow in a logical order that is spelled out by month. It provides many opportunities for teachers to use their professional judgement to monitor and adjust.
