Word Identification: A Teacher's Story. Early Literacy and Assessment for Learning (K-3) Series
Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL)
Hannah is a Pacific island grade 1 teacher in a local village school. She has established a 90-minute daily literacy block in which she focuses on literacy-related activities. During these blocks, she notices many of her students having difficulty reading words she thinks they should know by sight. She wants to help her students learn frequently used words so they can say them quickly when they see them in print. Written by the staff of the Pacific Communities with High-performance In Literacy Development (Pacific CHILD) project at Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL), this booklet, fourth of the five-part Early Literacy and Assessment for Learning (K-3) Series, shares a teacher's experiences creating a rich learning environment that enhances accurate and automatic word identification for young students.
