This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, uses whole-to-parts phonics instruction as an approach to beginning reading. Letter-sound correspondences are taught within a meaningful context, and in an explicit, systematic, and extensive manner. This lesson uses onset-rime analogy to present word families and spelling patterns. The lesson supports cooperative and integrative learning where students and teacher learn together and carry out tasks collaboratively.
