During this unit, students will continue to explore phonological awareness, phonics, and print awareness for the purpose of understanding the connection between reading and writing. They will work with letters and sounds to decode vc, cvc, ccvc, and cvcc words in text and independent of context. With adult assistance, students will identify the purposes and forms of media (e.g., advertisements, newspapers, radio programs) and identify media techniques such as sound and movement while continuing to utilize the reading processes. Students will identify important facts, retell the order of events, and recognize media during read alouds and shared readings. They will continue to write or dictate stories in chronological order using the writing process and appropriate conventions. Students will begin to revise their stories by adding details and sentences.
