EDU 371: Phonics Based Reading & Decoding week 2 DQ 2

Read Chapters 7 and 8. Chapter 7 is entitled, “Onsets, Rimes, and Basic Phonic Patterns” (pp. 101-119) and Chapter 8 is entitled, “Teaching Advanced Word Patterns” (pp. 120-141). In addition, it is highly recommended that you read the following web articles from the Reading Rockets program:

  • Word study: A new approach to teaching spelling. http://www.readingrockets.org/article/word-study-new-approach-teaching-spelling
  • Word study instruction in the k-2 classroom.
  • http://www.readingrockets.org/article/word-study-instruction-k-2-classroom

In your discussion prompt, explain why it is important to teach word patterns. Also, describe how you will teach word patterns in your classroom. Your textbook provides several examples. On page 126, the title of the section is “Be Creative with Word Study.” How can you be creative?

Please make sure to refer to chapter 7 and 8. I have attached the chapter as a docx. Rubric Scoring sheet is also attached. Please follow that. 🙂
