In years past, Connections, and other science-based programs, were used mostly as intervention for struggling readers, but as schools realize that the way they've typically taught reading isn't working for all students, and as more schools are keeping up with research and moving to the science of reading, we've had more requests to train teachers with an emphasis in how to use Connections as the regular curriculum for whole group instruction.

Learn how to teach a child phonemic awareness in a direct, explicit, multisensory way. Objects are used to represent sounds. Where alphabet books are good at showing a picture that begins with the letter sound being taught, we made it even better by using an object the child can actually hold. They can feel the sound the letter i makes when they hold an iguana, for example. Then they learn to recognize, segment, differentiate, and manipulate sounds through activities that cover all five levels of phonemic awareness. This is the building block for reading.
APPLE Seed will provide participants to teach emergent readers in a one-on-one, or group of up to four students, for a thirty-minute session, two to three times a week. The plan is to work with children the teachers have targeted as students struggling with phonemic awareness and learning the sounds of letters.
Comprehension: OG in 3D curriculum teaches a process of gathering, organizing, and synthesizing expository reading material. The process includes multisensory strategies and materials that address diverse learning profiles.
