What do you use since F&P doesn't provide a Scope and Sequence? Any ideas or help is appreciated? We just purchased the program so I'm new to it.

The MASTER LESSON GUIDE Suggested Sequence for Phonics Lessons (from the Collection Guide or in the Online Resources) is the recommended sequence for the system, but the lessons can be organized in whatever way works best for you. The Nine Areas of Learning Across the Year is a detailed chart found toward the end of the Introduction pages of the Lessons book as well as in Online Resources. In creating this ten-month overview or map, we considered how children’s experiences are likely to build across the year. This map shows a continuum of easier to harder principles. It will help you think in broad strokes about the program you are providing for the children in your classroom, which must always be considered in light of your observations and assessments of what the children know and can do at any given point. If children are very knowledgeable and experienced, you may decide that some lessons can be abbreviated or omitted. If children are very inexperienced in a given area, lessons may need to be repeated using different examples. Reflecting on the map will help you be aware of the entire body of knowledge that is important for your students.


Best Wishes,
Helenann
