Description: First Grade Foundations(FGF) is a four day structured, multisensory, scripted training program. It is derived from Sandy Thompson's Language Foundations (Structured Language Basics). Through and interactive delivery system, FGF meets the needs of a variety of students, from reading-disabled to gifted. FGF allows teachers to be prepared for any student reading level with pre-literacy techniques and a comprehensive, balanced approach to the basics of language arts instruction. FGF creatures instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, oral reading, fluency, vocabulary comprehension, grammar, and spelling (includes spelling lists). Each lesson contains a decodable story for fluency development and assessment. FGF can easily be supplemented with standard literature or literature from any basal reading program. Periodic student assessments occur every 15-20 lessons. Trainees will leave with a guided curriculum, supporting documents, and teaching manipulatives.
