Day 3 Outcomes

By the end of today, participants will:

  • Know the components of the Houghton Mifflin word work instruction section and how to teach each lesson.
  • Understand how the Houghton Mifflin word work instruction supports the Reading/Language Arts standards and research.
  • Understand and be able to scaffold support for ELD, Extra Support, Special Education, and Challenge students in phonics, spelling, and vocabulary instruction.

  • Random Discussion Groups
    • Scaffolds for English Learners and Special Needs students as they master Reading Comprehension Standards:
  • 2.3 Connect and clarify main ideas by identifying their relationships to other sources and related topics.
  • 2.4 Clarify an understanding of texts by creating outlines, logical notes, summaries, or reports.
  • 2.7 Make reasonable assertions about a text through accurate, supporting citations.

  • Gather your homework article and responses from Day 2
  • Form four groups by numbering off spring, summer, winter, autumn around the room
  • As a “seasons” group, discuss your quotations and notes as well as why you found them important.
reading language arts framework
Reading/Language ArtsFramework

According to the Reading/Language Arts Framework (2007), the curriculum for reading and language arts in lower grades should provide explicit and systematic instruction and diagnostic support in:

 Phonemic awareness  Phonics

 Decoding  Word-attack skills

 Spelling  Vocabulary

In grade 6, the emphasis in reading instruction is characterized as reading and learning for life: reading to learn.

However, this emphasis does not diminish the need for ALL

6th grade students to have command of the word analysis, fluency, and systematic vocabulary development strands.

  • Find the Reading/Language Arts Frameworksection in your binder that begins on page 93, and ends on page 110 - Third Grade Standards and Instruction.
  • Highlight the words and phrases that guide teachers towards the explicit instruction in word analysis needed for third grade success.

Revisiting PUT READING FIRST, page 4


Phoneme: The smallest unit of spoken language that makes a difference in the meaning of words.

English has about 42 phonemes.

Spanish has about 23 phonemes.

Try this:

How many phonemes do you hear?

  • Frog 4. Smile
  • Grab 5. Queen
  • Fix


  • a grapheme is the smallest unit of written language that represents

a phoneme in the spelling of a word.

  • a grapheme may be just one letter (s, p, f, d, b)
  • a grapheme may be several letters (ch, sh, th, -ck, ea, -igh)

Your trainer will read a list of phonemes-

Write a grapheme for each sound you hear:

phonemic awareness
Phonemic Awareness


Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate the individual sounds (phonemes) in spoken words.

Phonemic awareness can be taught and learned.

Phonemic awareness instruction helps children learn to read and spell, especially when paired with instruction where children are taught to manipulate phonemes by using the letters of the alphabet.

Review these terms from Put Reading First, page 6:

Phoneme manipulation


Segmenting (Segmentation)



Phonics is the understanding that there is a predictable

relationship between phonemes and graphemes—that is,

spoken language can be represented by a pattern of letters

and spellings in written language.

scaffolding continued

Work with your table group to answer these questions after you have read Framework pages 165 - 166:

  • What ELD and support strategies would scaffold this lesson for your ELs and Extra Support/Special Education students?
  • What extension activities or strategies might you use to extend the learning of the Advanced students?

Add your table group’s suggestions to the chart displayed by the trainer.

extra support handbook
  • Pre-teach Day 1 (see ES sample page 14-15)
  • Re-teach Day 3 (see ES sample page 18-19)
  • Teach – Guided Practice – Practice/Apply format

The structural analysis lesson (decoding longer words) is

taught on Day 2 in Houghton Mifflin.

The Extra Support pre-teaching lesson is taught on

Day 1 to prepare students, and re-taught on Day 3

as a review of the standard.

  • Discuss the value of the pre-teach and re-teach lessons for students.
  • Which students will benefit from these ES lessons?
  • When might you include these lessons in your day?

  • We will take a closer look at spelling concepts in Houghton Mifflin
  • Each group will create a chart mapping the five days of spelling instruction for the spelling concept on which we will focus for one week of instruction.

  • What do you notice about the spelling patterns and concepts taught in this theme?
  • Look at the activities for the 5 days of instruction.
  • What can you say about the activities and practice suggested in the TE?
word study research
Word Study Research
  • Find the article “Integrated Word Study: Spelling, Grammar, and Meaning in the Language Arts Classroom” by Invernizzi, Abouzeid, and Bloodgood.
  • Read and highlight this article using the “Insert Strategy” as you read about many word study extension activities for ELs and other special needs groups of learners.

using the article and charts just created:

    • Which strategies and ideas might be used with

English Learners?

    • Which strategies might be used with special needs

or Special Education students?

sound spelling cards
Sound/Spelling Cards
  • Suggestions for use
    • Display for use during spelling, phonics, and writing
    • In grade 6, display cards with the “spelling side” (yellow and orange border) out
    • Make sure cards can easily be seen by all
    • Use direct instruction to teach the correct name, sound, and spelling for each card.
displaying the sound spelling cards
Displaying the Sound/Spelling Cards
  • Arrange the S/S cards:

A-Z in order, including short vowels

Digraphs ch, sh, th, wh

Long Vowels a, e, i, o, u

R Controlled Vowels ar, ir, or

Vowel Combinations aw, oo

Diphthongs oi, ou

Students need to have a clear view of the cards

  • Directly teach the use of the Sound/Spelling cards and the color code:
    • Short vowels have a green background
    • Long vowels have a yellow background
    • Vowels are red
    • Consonants are black
