I need 10 Recipe for Reading manuals for EL teachers to use when providing comprehensive, multisensory, phonics-based reading programs. EL students struggle with learning English letter sounds and apply them when decoding.
HES is a Title I school and it is known to be the largest EL school in the state of Maryland and ranks number 6 in poverty.
We currently provide language services to over 400 active English learners.
Students attending our school come from a variety of backgrounds. Student population consists of 6.8% Asian, 17.5% Black/African American, 67.4 % Hispanic/Latino, 4.8% White and 3.1% 2 or more races.
91.4 % students receive Free/Reduced Price Meals.
52.6% of our students are identified as English Learners and 7.3% of our students receive Special Education.
There are approximately 44 sounds in English, with some variation dependent on accent and articulation. The 44 English phonemes are represented by the 26 letters of the alphabet individually and in combination. This can be confusing for English learners and struggling readers.
Phonemic awareness plays an important role when understanding language needs.
Language and reading teachers need to ensure that reading interventions include the development of phonemic awareness and decoding. I want to use the book to train EL teachers in my school and raise the awareness of phonemic awareness need and the need of patience and understanding of students as they struggle to pronounce sounds, letters, and words that they have encountered many times before. Teachers will use the progression to teach and reinforce sounding out words and decoding.
