The learner will grow in their phonological awareness (global awareness of sound) and phonemic awareness (identifying individual sounds in spoken words) through games, while also using comprehension, social, and language skills as they participate in the poem.
My educational background prepared me for teaching all subjects K-6. However, my online ESL teaching and extensive research into many different reading programs has increased my effectiveness in teaching reading and reading readiness. Teaching English as a Second Language with a high emphasis on sound pronunciation has helped develop my skills in teaching the umbrella category of phonological awareness. Extensively researching science-based reading programs and strategies for different learners in my own homeschool and community has allowed me to blend the best and most effective parts of each program for the individual learners I work with. I believe this science-based research and experience will translate to my online learners as well.
