Course Description LEVEL 1

The Fundations® Level 1 Workshop provides the practice and guidance needed to effectively begin teaching the Fundations® Level 1 curriculum. Teachers using the Level K and Level 2 Fundations® programs will also benefit from this Level 1 training. At the completion of the workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Have a solid background knowledge and understanding of the research base supporting the why and how of Fundations® instruction.
  • Identify the skills taught in Fundations® Level 1: phonemic awareness; the alphabetic principle; sound mastery; ways to form the key linkages-letter name, formation and sound; phonics and word study; vocabulary; high frequency/trick words; fluency; comprehension strategies; manuscript handwriting, spelling, and punctuation.
  • Understand the principles of instruction: explicit, sequential, and cumulative instruction that engages multiple learning modalities with multisensory instruction, repetition, and immediate, specific feedback.
  • Prepare a daily Level 1 learning plan and practice lesson activity procedures.
  • Build a learning focused classroom: maximizing instructional time, learning lesson activities, using questioning to guide student learning and mastery, and encouraging craftsmanship for optimum outcomes.
