Overview

Phonics They Use: Words for Reading and Writing, 6/e

Patricia M. Cunningham

This long-standing bestseller is a classic in the field, used by both pre-service and practicing teachers because it offers a collection of strategies and hands-on activities that provide a framework for teaching phonics.

Written by an outstanding scholar, Phonics They Use seamlessly weaves together the complex and varied strategic approaches needed to help students develop reading and writing skills. Building on previous editions, it focuses on how students use phonics to read and write, not just how much phonics a student knows. Each chapter is filled with developmentally appropriate activities that help students with fluency, rhyme-based decoding, spelling, and more. This edition includes three chapters on assessment, more suggestions for adapting activities for English language learners, and new phonics interventions for older struggling readers.

A wonderful resource for someone who is tutoring children of different levels in reading. One book to help them with all of their children, what a bargain!

- Christine M Eaton, Owner/Director, Little Learners Early Childhood Center, Inc., Olathe, KS

I already own a previous edition, but the new material makes this book worth investing in once again.

- Tracy Hendrix, Academic Coach, Carnesville Elementary School, Carnesville, GA

All elementary (K through 5) teachers should own this book and implement the strategies and lessons Patricia Cunningham suggests.
