Phonics Instruction Doesn't Have to Be 'Boring & Dull'

I think phonics plays an important role in reading instruction, though it is often used in some of the most mind-numbingly ways possible. When I teach phonics to English-language learners, I share collections of words with similar sounds and accompanied by illustrations. I then ask students to identify the similarities and work together to create the "rules" that guide specific letter sounds. This kind of inductive teaching and learning promotes phonics and higher-order thinking skills of pattern-seeking and categorization.
