2. Exploring Word Study: Digging Deeper into Transitional and Fluent Word Study (Target Audience: 3–5/6)

Word study is the component of the guided reading lessons that allows teachers the opportunity to provide explicit instruction for phonics and word-solving skills. By teaching a short word study activity during the guided reading lesson, teachers can prompt students who need more support in learning a skill and teach them how to transfer that newly learned skill to reading and writing. In this workshop, teachers will learn and practice word study procedures that support Transitional and Fluent readers in developing strong decoding and encoding skills and vocabulary.
