Reflection: Pacing The Nurse and er, ir, and ur - Section 1: Hook


When I started teaching the Reading Foundational Standards, I was like, "this is awesome!" The flow is great, and my students were learning. But, I needed a way to organize my pace. I do have some students at the pre-school level still, so I also needed to see where I should start.

I like to cross off letters once I have thoroughly taught them in a whole group series of lesson. I may revisit them in small groups, but I needed a linear model. So, I made one and the teachers that have used it have had the highest growth scores in our state for two years in a row. It just makes the progression easier for me to understand. I did add a few letters and sounds that Sopris West recommends, but that is just to make sure I cover everything my students need to be ready for second grade.

Here is the resource I created to help guide you: First Grade Reading Foundations.
