Sound-Along Phonics Program by Julie Webb

Sound-Along Phonics Program

Feel confident that you're meeting the needs of all your early readers as they sing their way from reading to spelling!

Teaching reading is no joke.

There are so many skills students need to develop and so many standards to cover. For early readers, this translates to a lot of time spent teaching phonics. But the time you spend teaching doesn’t always equal mastery for students.
 
You’ve got kids who need a lot of support and extra practice to catch up. You also have some who are ready for more advanced phonics skills. How can you possibly meet all their needs?

You’re working harder than you need to.

It may feel like you’re on the right track if you’re already using a systematic approach to teaching phonics. But without a way to easily differentiate instruction for your students, you’re teaching your heart out while some students still don’t show enough progress. 
 
Teachers who use Sound-Along Phonics report experiencing more teaching confidence because they know they’re doing their best work. The boost they get from Sound-Along Phonics makes differentiation realistic and doable, and their students love learning to read and write. Wouldn’t it feel great to know how to give every student the phonics instruction they deserve?

A simple system for targeting student needs.

Early in my teaching career I felt like I was caught in the middle of the reading wars. Some of my colleagues claimed that only drill-and-kill phonics instruction would meet the needs of my early readers. Other colleagues claimed that phonics instruction was most effective in-the-moment. I quickly learned that all of them were wrong. I know they meant well, but these two extreme approaches both missed some important aspects of phonics instruction.
 
If you really look into the research behind teaching phonics you learn two things:
1.   Phonics instruction should be systematic.
2.   Phonics instruction should be differentiated.
 
Well, how in world are we supposed to pull that off? I was determined to figure out a way to combine the two and Sound-Along Phonics was the answer.
 
With Sound-Along Phonics you can follow the sequence of phonemes with a systematic approach, and you can pinpoint the starting place for every student within that system. That way students are practicing all the phonemes they need while at the same time honoring where they are developmentally. Yes! Finally a way to differentiate learning that was actually realistic.

You can be that teacher.

With Sound-Along Phonics I saw my students’ decoding and encoding skills improve almost immediately. Not only that, but their confidence was through the roof! As I refined the program the results spoke for themselves, and other teachers began asking me for my secret. Once I shared Sound-Along Phonics with them they were hooked! They told me:
 
“Before using Sound-Along my phonics instruction was all over the place. Now I know exactly where my students are and exactly where they’re headed next. And best of all it’s so easy to do. Just a little bit of practice every day and my kiddos get it!”
