The teacher reviews previously learned sound-spellings. Notice her explanation of the three “sounds” for the inflectional suffix ed and the order of frequency of those three “sounds.”
The teacher guides a small group of 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?
In this video, the teacher provides practice with decodable text reading opportunities with a small group. The students read a paragraph at a time, once by themselves for accuracy and the second time together for fluency practice. Notice the teacher providing a student-friendly definition and example of an unknown word.
