Touchphonics Teacher's Guide and Resource Book


The Teacher's Guide and Resource Book provides direct, systematic instruction in an easy-to-use format that will facilitate teacher planning.  Fifty nine lessons introduce and review phonemes in a detailed, eleven-step format that incorporates phonemic awareness; linking sounds to letters; blending sounds; building and manipulating words; transcribing words; and a decodable reader with prereading and comprehension activities.

Other resources include:

  • prereading exercises and a review of consonant letters for students who require additional support when beginning the program
  • additional phonological awareness activities in the appendix
  • patterned word lists for extending lessons or creating additional activities, games, and drills
  • Assessment tools which include Consonant Inventory; Decoding and Encoding Diagnostic Inventory; reproducible summary and score sheets; and running record guidelines
