What is FUNdations? FUNdations is a phonological/phonemic awareness, phonics and spelling program based on the Wilson Reading System. It utilizes a multi-sensory approach by connecting gross motor memory to learning. This is more memorable than fine motor memory. Some examples are: sky-writing, tracing and tapping. This approach gives the student a good foundation for reading and spelling.
Major emphasis will be placed on:
*Phonological and Phonemic Awareness
*Irregular (trick) Word Instruction
