Phonics with Feeling.
Heath, Wanda; Carlson, Sarah
"Phonics with Feeling" is a teacher-written phonics-based literature series promoting student self esteem and self expression. The 4- to 6-week project has been used with first and second grade students for 2 years. "Phonics with Feeling" is a series of four books, each reinforcing a specific phonetic skill while integrating other curricular areas such as problem solving, mapping, math, and art. After being introduced to a phonetic skill, students are given their own copy of the book which reinforces that specific skill. Students illustrate their books, share them at school, participate in a culminative activity, and then take them home to share with their families and add to their libraries. Teachers can write their own series of books to reinforce their own reading program. Materials needed for the project include a word processor to create the books, a photocopier, maps, and whatever other materials teachers decide to use for culminating activities. (RS)
