Book Title: Extra Practice for Struggling Readers: Phonics: Motivating Practice Packets That Help Intermediate Students Build Essential Decoding Skills to Succeed in Reading and Writing
Publisher: Scholastic Teaching Resources (Teaching
Author: Linda Beech
While phonics instruction is important for all readers, it is essential for older students whose underdeveloped reading skills impede content-area learning. This resource offers dozens of practice pages that give struggling readers multiple opportunities to recognize, review, and reinforce must-know phonics elements, such as consonants, long and short vowels, blends, digraphs, and more. With this practice, students dramatically improve their ability to recognize sound-spelling relationships and use these skills to accurately and efficiently decode words, which in turn boosts fluency and comprehension. For use with Grades 3–6.
