Phonological Automaticity

Students develop phonemic and phonetic skills by using a multi-sensory approach to automatically recognize, process and manipulate any combination of the 44 sounds of the English language.


Students at Halifax Learning develop fluency, comprehension and vocabulary by share-reading and free-writing activities.  These activities strengthen a student's sound system as well as further develop comprehension skills. 

  • Share-Reading: Students engage in teacher-guided reading activities by taking turns reading orally at the appropriate level.  This allows students to have a continual conversation with the text to acquire high-level comprehension skills.  Strategies to enhance comprehsnion and derive meaning from unknown vocabulary are taught at this time. 
  • Free-Writing: Students freely express their ideas and thoughts using their nautral language, not hindered by their difficulty with spelling.
