SPIRE 4th Edition Teacher's Guide, Level 5
The central resource to teach level 5, this Teacher’s Guide offers step-by-step support for each concept. Explicit, teacher-led instruction is provided for every part of the S.P.I.R.E. ten-step lesson in an easy-to-follow format.
Each new concept is first presented in an Introductory Lesson, then practiced in Reinforcing Lessons along with previously taught concepts, which are then spiraled through the Reinforcing Lessons to provide comprehensive review. The major part of this guide is a series of ten-step lessons for the concepts presented in a level.
A Lesson Overview precedes every lesson and includes all the materials needed and the activities taught for each step in the lesson.
At the end of the Teacher’s Guide is an appendix, which includes additional teaching resources, vocabulary development, rereading for fluency directions, sentence dictation directions, alternate dictation words and sentences, an annotated workbook, and a list of phonogram cards.
