  1. Great tips! Love all the resources. I think 45 min. with questions at the end is the perfect amount of time.

  2. Hi Nicole!
    We’re thrilled glad the sight word tips and resources are helpful for you! Thank you so much for your feedback on the timing!

  3. How do I practice phonological and phonemic awareness everyday whe. I am teaching 4th and 5th grade Inclusion? I am a special education teacher in a general education setting. Sometimes the 5th graders get embarrassed and don’t want to be pulled from the class.
    Then there are some readers who are on the 6th or 7th grade level, so I can’t really do the whole class.
    If I have small groups, it’s hard to coordinate with an emergency hire teacher without any experience and thinks this ECRI is a cult?

  4. Hi Jody!

    I think your best bet is to create an environment where it’s expected that all students will be pulled for groups. So you’ll pull the fifth graders to work on phonological awareness, but you’ll also pull the readers at the 6th or 7th grade level to work on the skills they need. This will help to make the fifth graders feel less different for being pulled.

    You could also arrange the seating in your classroom to match the groups you would need to pull. So all of the fifth graders who you would want to work on phonological awareness with could sit together in a pod. That way you could go to them when it’s time to work instead of pulling them out.

    I hope one of those suggestions helps!
