Reply To: Teaching Phonological Awareness


I am currently incorporating phonological awareness by focusing on spelling rules. I teach third grade, so most of my kids can read. We spend 10-15 minutes each day go over rules such as when we use ay or ai. We review prior skills that have been taught as well. I do some phonics in small group with my struggling readers. It is a lot of decoding.

I do need to bring in more multisensory. I need more ideas for that. We do clap out syllables, but It would be great to have more options.

My questions would be what other ways can I integrate multisensory. Also, is there a specific order that I should be teaching spelling rules?
