Do you want to learn a fast, fun effective approach to teaching Phonics? It’s time you came to the Dance –  The Phonics Dance is a quick and easy way to
teach phonics and increase the reading and writing skills of each and every student in your classroom. Meet all of your students’ different learning styles with
this brain based approach to learning the sounds in the English language.  The goal of this session is to provide phonemic and phonetic success for all primary
students, regardless of their developmental level.
This seminar will motivate you and your students to work smarter not harder, all in just fifteen minutes a day.  The Phonics Dance offers learning through cost
free strategies that incorporate rhyme, movement and chant. Building on phonemic awareness, students become confident,
successful writers. In the process they develop strong decoding skills through the use of
“hunking and chunking” to build poise and fluency in reading.
Goals of the Dance include:
Utilizing phonics instruction as the springboard to all of the literacy in your classroom
Incorporating your word wall to teach language arts concepts and vocabulary
Demonstrating brain based lessons that motivate all of the students in your classroom to become word detectives
This is a nationally recognized program which is researched based and meets the standards for the Common Core.
Participants will-
Learn an effective way to incorporate phonics instruction across the language arts curriculum
Discover effective ways to develop writing skills of primary students
Explore ideas for  helping children use the classroom word wall to teach and reinforce Language Arts concepts
Be able to implement easy to use vocabulary instruction
