Lesson Model Video: Word Work

The teacher guides a small group of 4th and 5th grade students through a dictation lesson where students sound out words and sentences and write them. Notice the correction of one student’s spelling of were. What could the teacher have done differently to prepare the student to write the correct version of were?

This lesson aligns to Step 6 (Word Work for Decoding and Encoding) of the Explicit Phonics Lesson Sequence shown in the CORE Teaching Reading Sourcebook, p. 175.
