    Introducing a new series: Reacting to Fountas and Pinnell

    #056: Fountas and Pinnell are big names in the field of literacy education. But for years they've been accused of advocating methods that do not align with reading research. Fountas and Pinnell have finally responded to this criticism in a 10-part blog series called "Just to Clarify." This episode is the introduction to a 10-part series in which I respond to their blogs, one by one. It's my first "reaction" series, and I'm excited! I hope you are too.

Great explanation of the science of reading!

I listened to a previous free webinar that Anna did with another teacher about how to teach reading using the science of reading approach. I love that she taught “the other way” before and acknowledges the good parts of it. The main articles and posts that I see tearing down the science of reading seem to think that this replaces the entire language arts curriculum! It is a method of teaching children to read. I had already found, now that I’m working with young children (I was a 5th grade teacher in the classroom, but I now tutor K-6 plus all ages through high school with learning disabilities), that teaching the letter sounds was the first thing I had to do. I was looking for the best way to teach phonics, and this is it! Of course, their total ELA also consists of real literature, vocabulary, writing (my true specialty), handwriting (another specialty), and more. But many children don’t just “pick it up.” Especially the population I work with, which includes not only kids with disabilities, but kids whose parents speak English as a second language. Direct instruction in phonics, step-by-step instructions for writing, and intentional vocabulary instruction are important for helping these kids stay on track. So, am I a “traditional teacher?” Oh, my goodness no. My students do projects, write about their own topics, and study things they are interested in. But they can do this because they have this strong foundation. If you are not convinced about the science of reading, please learn more about how it can fit in with the rest of your curriculum. This is a great way - listen to the podcast in your car! Excellent resource.

Worth your time! Excellent podcast

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who has children in their life! We are always teaching the little ones around us whether we realize it or not. This podcast will help any thoughtful adult be more intentional with the children in their life.
