15650: NCCAT Foundational Skills Literacy Badge Part 2 Phonics Virtual
NCCAT will hold a five-session series focused on a research-to-practice exploration of the foundational skills in early literacy. Effective instruction in these fundamental components holds the key to life-long learning for every child in your classroom.
Attend all five and earn an NCCAT literacy badge or attend individual sessions to deepen your own understanding of the building blocks of beginning reading.

This class will focus on phonics. Phonics instruction teaches children how to decode letters into their respective sounds, a skill that is essential for them to read unfamiliar words by themselves.

Most words are in fact unfamiliar to early readers in print, even if they have spoken knowledge of the word. Having letter-sound knowledge will allow children to make the link between the unfamiliar print words to their spoken knowledge.
