Learning Path Stones:Listening and Reading Comprehension - As children develop comprehension of books read aloud or independently- they explore the uses and functions of written language. They begin to construct meaning- eventually applying critical skills to make inferences and draw conclusions.Vocabulary - While infants and toddlers learn vocabulary by memory- older children use word structure and context to help understand the meaning of a word. They identify synonyms and antonyms. They use prefixes- suffixes and base words to build their own vocabulary.Phonics Skills - Before they can read independently- children must learn the relationship of letters to their sounds and be able to distinguish individual sounds- or phonemes- within words. Phonics skills help children sounds out new words.Word Recognition - As children learn to read- they must be able to decode the words they don\'t know- to translate strings of letters into words. Eventually they can recognize common words that can not be sounded out (the- said- she).Book and Print Basics - A child\'s early experiences with books greatly influence his ability to learn to read. Reading together helps a child learn how to turn pages one at a time and that text moves from left to right. Advanced readers learn how to use books for research.Phonological Awareness - Along with learning language and letters- phonological awareness - the ability to pick out and play with sounds in words - is essential for learning to read.Consonants - There are more consonants sounds than there are consonants in the alphabet. A consonant digraph is a pair of consonants that stand for a single sound (ch- sh- th- wh).Vowels - Spelling begins with regular short vowel sounds (cap) and long vowel sounds (with silent e- cap becomes cape). Finally- children learn the rules and patterns of vowel pairs (ee)- digraphs (ai in train)- dipthongs (oi in boil) and r-controlled vowels (farm- bird).
