Orientation Introduction to Fundations! Unit 1 Unit 2 With Mrs. Gullick, Reading Teacher Christine Southard, Parent
What is fundations? Fundations is a whole class reading program that instructs kids in the basics of reading: from simple letter sound correspondence, to consonant – vowel - consonant words, to multisyllabic words. Fundations instruction takes place in grades K – 2 at Fishkill Plains and these lessons are the foundations of decoding. If you have concerns about your child’s reading skills, please contact your child’s teacher and the school reading teacher, Mrs. Gullick.
Echo Me...... The children are introduced to the short vowel sounds through their keywords.
Watch this video on how the children echo the letter, keyword and sound of each letter in the alphabet during the drill sounds activity. Click here.
The students will learn six syllable types while in the Fundations Reading Program. Click here for examples.
As your child progresses through school, they’ll be exposed to the scaffolding components of the Wilson Fundations program. Read the packets that come home from your child’s teacher. Contact the teacher if your child is having difficulty.
Practice letter-sound correspondence with your young children. Practice sight word recognition with your young children.
No matter what age your child is: READ to YOUR KIDS! Have your children read to you!
