Word Study Courses
- Word Fluency
- Word Building
- Word meaning
Word Fluency is one of three courses in our Word Study Warm-Ups.
It focuses on building word recognition through decoding skills, phoneme mapping, and automaticity tasks. You can view the course here: Word Fluency.
In the Word Building course, we learn to encode phonemes. Students will practice writing orthographic patterns, phoneme-grapheme mapping, and spelling fluency.
The Word Meaning course is the bridge to reading comprehension. There are two sides to successful reading: word recognition and language comprehension.
Word meaning focuses on language comprehension at the word level. This course covers from basic to advanced:
- Greek and Latin Roots
- SAT Words
