Developing Zoo Phonics
Being a tutor with WyzAnt has been a great experience so far. I have found a lot of opportunities to grow and build my library of resources, but my favorite new strategy is an extended Zoo Phonics kit I built myself. I began to build up a plush set of zoo alphabet characters in response to working with a preschool age child. Now I have added long vowels, consonant diagraphs and tricky vowel combos such as /oo/. I am finding this extended set of plush characters to be a delight for the second through fifth graders I currently tutor. I deeply enjoy responding to new areas of demand and love to bring new finds to all of my students.
