Back by popular demand, Wilson Fundations gives teachers the tools they need to teach reading and literacy to the youngest of students: Grades K-2. Learning to read is critical in the formative years, and this workshop gives you the skills as an educator to create literacy and reading in younger students. The first day will focus on grade K, the second day will focus on Grade 1, and the last day will focus on Grade 2. 

Wilson's Fundations provides research based materials and strategies essential to a comprehensive reading, spelling and handwriting program. 
Students in K-3 receive a systematic program in critical fundational skills emphasizing:
-The Fundations® Level K-2 Workshop provides the practice and guidance needed to effectively begin teaching the Fundations® Level K curriculum.
-A solid background knowledge and understanding of the research base supporting the why and how of Fundations® instruction.
-Identify the skills taught in Fundations® Level K: phonological awareness; phonemic awareness and the alphabetic principle; sound mastery; ways to form the key linkages-letter name, formation and sound; phonics; vocabulary; high frequency/trick words; fluency; comprehension strategies; manuscript handwriting, spelling, and punctuation.
-Understand the principles of instruction: explicit, sequential, and cumulative instruction that engages multiple learning modalities with multisensory instruction, repetition, and immediate, specific feedback.
-Prepare a daily Level K learning plan and practice lesson activity procedures.
-Build a learning focused classroom: maximizing instructional time, learning lesson activities, using questioning to guide student learning and mastery, and encouraging craftsmanship for optimum outcomes.
No prerequisites are required. Each participant will receive a Wilson fundations kit.

All workshops have a cost, unless otherwise indicated. No one will be turned down due to cost. If you have any issues making a payment in full, please email Judy Oppenheim.

A cholov yisroel lunch will be served with each workshop.
