This video shows 1st graders using Spelling to Complement Reading, an instructional practice in the K-2 Reading Foundations Skills Block, that helps students examine the reciprocal relationship between spelling and reading words. First students listen to a word read aloud, repeat the word, and segment the word into the phonemes they hear. Next they use sound boxes to analyze each word for the number of phonemes and graphemes. Finally students hear the words read aloud again, and write them from memory. This instructional practice is used in 1st and 2nd grades.
