Are you tired of being told what needs to be taught in word study, but are at a loss as to how to tie all the pieces together without it feeling like a three ring circus? This session combines the pieces of effective word study instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, prefixes, suffixes, vocabulary, and spelling. We will show you how the pieces can naturally and systematically all fit together. Literacy leader, Heather Schulz, and first grade teacher, Amy Bear, will take you through their firsthand experiences of using instructional routines in an interactive, engaging and effective way. You will come away from the session looking at word study instruction through a different lens. You will be prepared to motivate your students in ways you never thought possible.
