Back from Hibernation
It's been a while since I've been able to post here. Getting the school year off to a good start seemed to be a little more pressing. Well, here's a great article on the 10 myths about reading instruction. This would be a good topic for a staff dialogue. The myth about phonemic awareness caught my eye. I recall my first year in elementary education (last year) asking one of my kindergarten teachers to explain to me what exactly was meant by phonemic awareness!! Let's hope my primary teachers have a better understanding of its importance than I did.
