Reply To: Intro to Science of Reading


Three main takeaways I have to share are:
1. “Everyone learns to read the same way.” This is huge because more often than not, educators are encouraged to teach in such a way that all students’ learning styles are reached. This approach can be frustrating at times, so the simple yet fascinating thought that learning to read is a one-way street is a relief.
2. Understanding that the success of learners/readers begin with the concept of learning letter sounds then matching them top letters and growing from there is synonymous to the steps of life – we acquire small skills to learn bigger/more complicated ones.
3. Learning how to fluidly merge explicit and systematic instruction into my lesson plans with the time I have for the reading block will be a welcome challenge.
Questions – none at this time.
