How Does it Work?
Literacy Links works by addressing the following fundamentals:
- Decoding — Decoding is the ability to read words by converting written symbols into speech sounds. When we read, we make sense of letters on a page. Letters are simply symbols that represent speech sounds.
- Monitoring for Meaning — Literacy is not only the ability to sound out a word; it also involves being able to make sense of the word.
- Reading in Context — Literacy Links helps the student put words into context, so they can fully grasp the meaning of sentences they read.
- Phonemic Awareness — the ability to identify and manipulate the sounds within words.
