Researchers have long known that phonemic awareness is highly correlated with individual differences in childrens’ word-reading skills. Training students in phonemic awareness skills and letter-sound knowledge is recommended in both the United States (NRP, 2000) and the United Kingdom (Rose, 2006). But why do some students struggle so much when learning their sounds? How can teachers help their students remember their sounds? Does the research recommend a particular method for teaching these foundational reading skills?
In this webinar Eyal Rav-Noy and Tzippy Rav-Noy, Co-Founders of Capit Learning, will begin with a discussion of the National Reading Panel Report, an evidence-based assessment of the scientific research literature on reading and its implications for reading instruction. They will share three tools the report recommends for early readers that often are overlooked by many teachers, researchers, and curriculum developers. Join Eyal and Tzippy to learn about these research-based tools that will increase your young students’ phonemic awareness skills and letter-sound knowledge. Learn how to easily integrate the tools into your existing lesson plans and classroom.
- Two lucky attendees will win a door prize during the live event. One will receive the CAPIT Movable Lower Case Alphabet and the other will win the CAPIT Movable Upper Case Alphabet. Each prize has a $60 value.

Eyal and Tzippy will field questions from attendees after their presentation. This webinar is designed for Pre-K through grade one teachers, transitional kindergarten teachers, reading specialists, and ELA coordinators. School librarians and special education teachers also will benefit from this session.
