Phonics Is Phun – Summer
2nd - 4th Grade

Phonics is Phun in August

This multi-sensory class is for students entering 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade. Learn phonics, spelling and syllabication rules. Apply phonics to reading, writing and spelling. Instruction based on the Wilson Language Program. One week sessions are listed below. Maximum – 5 students. Tuition: $225. A nonrefundable registration fee/deposit of $50 will apply toward materials fee.

The goals of this workshop are:

  • Increase phonological awareness through blending and segmentation of sounds, syllable splitting and phoneme manipulation. All of these are necessary components for success in reading.
  • Improve decoding and stop the guessing habit. Students will learn the 6 syllable types in the English language and rules of how to divide multisyllabic words.
  • Improve spelling by exploring sound options and using phonics rules. A daily visual drill, auditory drill and blending drill improve spelling and decoding.
  • Improve reading through practice in applying phonics rules to a text. Games and other activities will provide a fun way to practice.
  • Improve writing through sentence dictation and activities designed to apply spelling rules in writing.
