Fundations’ research-based approach and extensive program materials allow K-3 teachers to present a carefully structured reading and spelling curriculum using multisensory techniques. Fundations thoroughly teaches the foundational skills, and significantly supports reading, writing, speaking, and language standards found in states’ rigorous college- and career-ready standards, including the Common Core State Standards. It addresses all five areas of reading instruction with an emphasis on systematic phonics and word structure.

The Fundations Level K Workshop provides the practice and guidance needed to effectively begin teaching the Fundations Level K curriculum in a Tier 1 setting.

Upon completion of the course, participants are able to:

  • Grasp the background knowledge and understand the research base supporting the why and how of Fundations instruction.
  • Identify the skills taught in Fundations Level K: phonological awareness; phonemic awareness and the alphabetic principle; sound mastery; ways to form the key linkages-letter name, formation and sound; phonics; 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 K learning plan and practice lesson activity procedures.
  • Build a learning focused classroom by maximizing instructional time, learning lesson activities, using questioning to guide student learning and mastery, and encouraging craftsmanship for optimum outcomes.
