Earlier this year, we held a highly interactive, weeklong discussion on phonics instruction, Let's Talk Phonics.
Our Resource Collection has a friendly tool on the topic, devoted to Analogy Phonics one of three preferred methods (synthetic, analytic, and analogy) for teaching phonics: Teaching Analogy Phonics, developed (by Marn Frank, 2016). This resource is designed to equip ABE/ESL reading teachers with (1) an explanation of why analogy phonics instruction is recommended and (2) a "toolkit" that includes lesson plans, instructions, models, a variety of engaging student handouts for use in the classroom, and lists of word family relatives for ready access in designing analogy instruction.
Do you include phonics instruction in your practice? What do you think of analogy phonics? Do you agree that learners, as the resource states, "find it psychologically easier to divide words into onsets and rimes rather than individual letters and sounds?"
If you want to know more about phonics instruction, drop in with a question! Let's talk! Leecy
