Transcript of Week 9, Lecture 1 - Word Recognition

Word Recognition
How do we teach students to recognize words?
Grab an index card and write down:
Your favorite word
What makes up a word?
Talk with your group and make a list
Let's try it!
Why is this so hard?

Phonemes: smallest unit of speech sounds used to distinguish one word from another
Example: /b/ or /d/
Letters: Consonants (C) and Vowels (V)
Syllables: the basic phonological unit of speech
Every syllable contains one vowel sound
Onsets: initial consonant or consonants in a syllable
Rimes: the vowel and consonants that follow it
Word Families
Rimes that share the same spelling
Example: cat, bat, sat
Morphemes: smallest meaning unit in a word
Affixes - a morpheme that cannot stand alone
There are 26 letters that are represented by 44 different phonemes
Letters represent more than one sound
Sounds can be represented by more than one letter
Combinations of letters
Principles of Word Study

1. Start where the child is
2. Make word study an active process of classification
3. Base word study on contrasting words of different sounds or spelling patterns
4. Help children understand how the writing system works
5. Teach strategies for unlocking pronunciations of unknown words
6. Comprehension is the goal
So what does this look like in a classroom?
