    We currently are using Sonday daily to teach phonics instruction. I teach 3rd grade and now we have been moving into word parts and multisyllable words. Each day we review the prefixes and suffixes and then read and discuss words with these parts added to them. I can tell it is getting more difficult. We use fastbridge assessments to test their reading ability, accuracy, and fluency. Then we make small groups based on that data and work on the components of reading within those small groups. In addition, Fastbridge offers comprehension passages on each grade level. I print these and use these to practice and assess comprehension. I would like to try different assessment options such as Keep it going and My Favorite No. I currently use Popsicle Stick, Exit Tickets, and Whiteboards consistenlty.

    Hi, We just started using Fastbridge as well. We use it as a benchmark 3 times a year and then create progress monitoring groups based on the data. Our struggling readers need to be progress monitored at least 2 times a month. Do you put the students you progress monitor on different levels according to their reading abilities or do you add them in based on the grade level they are in? I teach 3rd grade and We noticed that the text was very similar from 2nd to 3rd grade. Also, do you have any other suggestions for use within Fastbridge? I do like the small group plans that it creates for you! I love using whiteboards for quick checks as well.

    I loved this game as well! I like how you mentioned that you already use the 6 syllable types in your teaching consistently. I do occasionally, but I am planning to use this more often and incorporate some fun games to make these lessons more engaging.

    I learned that all students can benefit from providing a multisensory approach, not just your struggling readers or those who have dyslexia. I would like to implement using bright colored paper, having students color code word parts/sounds, and using more manipulatives. I think these new strategies will help my struggling readers form a stronger understanding. I already provide text to speech support for certain students in class and provide prompts and sentence starters. I would like to incorporate more movement.

    I can see that I need both. I have students that need the foundational skills and could benefit from that in small group, but I also have a lot that would benefit from multisensory approach. I have some that don’t have that quick and automatic oral response to letter/word manipulation and need practice. I teach third grade, so closing the gap is so important. I love using the arm tapping for word parts and using tongue twisters for sound manipulation.

    I loved the four step teaching process with including explanation, demonstration, modeling, and practice. This sounds like a great approach and one that helps make it stick for students. I think it is important to incorporate the multisensory once students get better at manipulating the sounds orally.
