NGSS PD Opportunities

Units of Study in Phonics (Grades K-2)

  • Dates: 21 – 22 May, 2020
  • Location: Visalia
  • Address: 7000 W Doe Avenue, Sequoia Room

Primary teachers! If you are a kindergarten through second-grade teacher, consider joining us to learn how to infuse high-leverage phonics concepts and strategies into your day in a fun and engaging way. You will learn to engage learners with only 20 minutes of focused phonics instruction during your day while using mascots, songs, chants, rhymes and games.

This rigorous, research-based phonics program is designed to support and protect time for authentic reading and writing. Kindergarteners begin learning sound/symbol relationships as the sequence builds and angles to support the ultimate goal of transfer to reading and writing.

As part of this three-day institute, each participant will receive a grade level set of the Units of Study in Phonics by Lucy Calkins, et al with everything you need to get started in the fall. Our third day will begin with a review, debrief and discussion of how the implementation is going with demonstrations as needed to ensure that you have all of the skills necessary to make sure you are successful with your learners.

*Note: Due to the acquisition of materials for this workshop, registration will close 30 days prior to the first day of the workshop.
