  1. Wilcox Primary School’s Phonics Program FUndations

  2. A combined approach to early literacy • Using: • LIPS, • Fundations, • Orton-Gillingham, • Co-teaching and teamwork • And desperation.

  3. What is Fundations? Fundations is research based!

  4. Fundations is systematic: • It follows a very definite sequence. • It follows a very definite procedure

  5. Fundations is explicit: • It doesn’t leave room for guessing. • It teaches all concepts directly.

  6. Fundations is kinesthetic: • That means we MOVE!

  7. We learn letters and how to form those letters.

  8. We learn sounds using keywords.

  9. lip poppers quiet noisy

  10. quiet lip coolers

  11. quiet tip tappers

  12. Tongue scrapers noisy

  13. lifter

  14. Skinny Air noisy

  15. We learn the vowels using motions and keywords.

  16. What’s a digraph? • A digraph is 2 consonants stuck together making one new sound!

  17. Fat Air

  18. Quiet Fat Pushed Air

  19. Stick that tongue out! Tongue cooler

  20. And what about that “ck”…

  21. Tricky Digraphs

  22. What is a chicken letter and who is its buddy?

  23. We blend words by tapping the individual sounds! g i d

  24. What do we tap? • We tap out the sounds we hear, or what you can sound out. • These are words like ‘cat’, ‘cake’, ‘bell’. • We tap with our right hand only. • The cue is “right, red, ready”. • This is the foundation for word analysis.

  25. What don’t we tap? • We don’t tap trick words, we “pound” them out on our left arm. • These are words we can’t sound out. • The letters in the words trick us, such as “of”. It sounds like “uv”, but it’s spelled “of”. • Some other trick words: you, said, could, after, also

  26. We learn about word structure and sentence structure. Did Rick get a red rash?

  27. We ask a lot of questions: • How many words did you write? • How many letters are in the word? • How many digraphs? • How many consonants? • Tell me the ‘ck’ rule. • Tell me the rule for the bonus letters.

  28. The rules for ‘c’ and ‘k’: If ‘c’ steals one of ‘k’s vowels, ‘c’ has to sound like ‘s’, as in ‘city’.

  29. Some Sammy words… • fuss • fill • puff • buzz

  30. Glued Sounds • These are vowel/consonant combinations that share portions of each sound. • They are nasal sounds, with one letter drawing the other letter sound(s) into the nose and making the sounds come out “glued together”. all, am, an, ang, ing, ong, ung, ank, ink, onk, & unk
