Incorporating Science of Reading into your literacy stations or centers need not be overwhelming. In fact, many educators are following SOR protocols without realising it.

The following stations provide systematic and explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension and writing:

  1. Phonemic Awareness & Phonics: Activities focused on developing an understanding of the individual sounds, or phonemes, in spoken language. This might include rhyming games, segmenting and blending sounds, and identifying beginning and ending sounds in words.
  2. Fluency Passages: Activities designed to improve reading fluency, including repeated reading of texts and practicing reading with expression and prosody.
  3. Vocabulary: Activities focused on building students’ vocabulary knowledge, including the introduction of topic-specific words through that students can read and include in their writing activities.
  4. Comprehension: Activities aimed at developing students’ comprehension skills, including strategies for understanding text such as predicting, summarizing, questioning, and making connections (text to self connection)
  5. Writing: Activities that integrate writing instruction with reading instruction, such as guided writing, interactive writing activities and individual writing activities where students can apply phonics and spelling skills in their own writing.
