Phonics They Use: Words for Reading and Writing

Phonics They Use: Words for Reading and Writing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An invaluable resource for any teacher in search of new ideas! The new edition of this bestseller is packed with new activities and strategies for teaching reading. It weaves together the complex and varied strategic approaches needed to help students develop reading and spelling skills. Written by well-known author Patricia Cunningham, Phonics They Use offers a coherent collection of practical, hands-on activities that provide a framework for teaching phonics.

The Fourth Edition continues to emphasize that what matters most is when students use phonics for decoding a new word, for reading and spelling a new word, and for writing. Rather than subscribe to a single theory, the book stresses a balanced reading program— incorporating a variety of strategic approaches—tied to the individual needs of children.

  • Full chapter on developing phonological and phonemic awareness, including activities designed to develop the concept of rhyme and teach blending and segmenting as well as activities using children's names.
  • Includes classroom-tested ways to develop fluency as well as a Fluency Development Lesson that can be easily included in any teaching setting.
  • Includes assessment devices which focus not just on what children know about phonics but on what they actually use while reading and writing.

“It is one of the few phonics texts that achieves the goal of helping teachers to gain the basic phonics knowledge they need to teach to children.” Jeanne Cobb, Eastern New Mexico University

“For many, “phonics” will finally make sense after reading this book.” Mary Jane Eisenhauer, Purdue North Central
