Join us for a post-Halloween-candy-overdose party!

BYOC…Bring Your Own Candy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We’ll play with the candy to become experts in phonemic awareness and phonics.

If you teach reading, these are the fundamentals of our language that you need to know.

Researchers have repeatedly discovered that elementary teachers have poor knowledge of phonemic awareness and phonics knowledge (e.g.,ย Moats, 1994 orย ย Cunningham et al., 2009).ย  ๐Ÿ™

And…teachers with stronger knowledge in these domains get stronger outcomes in their students’ reading (e.g., McCutchen et al., 2002a or McCutchen et al., 2002b).

The good news is that it’s easy to learn–most of us just haven’t been taught it before.

So, let’s turn it into a party!! Be on the lookout for a prize, too! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
