The Only Authentic Small-Group Instruction for
Learning to Read in Spanish
The ENIL Foundational Skills Toolkit, (Herramientas para el desarrollo de Destrezas fundamentales) is designed to provide intensive word work for small groups of students who have demonstrated a need for specific skills in reading in Spanish, levels K–2.
This Toolkit provides mini-lessons and instructional strategies to help teachers implement code-focused instruction. Students receive explicit instruction in phonological awareness, high-frequency word development, and phonics—including letter-sound correspondences, syllable decoding from the simplest to the most complex, and spelling patterns that are not transparent in Spanish. Problem-solving strategies and careful attention to words and text as vehicles for meaning are intentionally part of every lesson, encouraging students to be meaning-making agents of their own learning.
Available for Common Core and TEKS.
