Author Wiley Blevins

One of the best places to learn about phonics (other than here, of course!) is the book “Phonics from A to Z” by Wiley Blevins. It is one of my phonics favs, and provides tons of great information is a way that is understandable. He provides word lists for each phonogram, books to read for phonics patterns, and much more. One of the things I especially like are the charts that show the frequencies of patterns.

A chart that shows the frequencies of long vowel patterns from the Phonics Pow Toolkit is based on a pdf of English-Language Spelling Pattern Generalizations from tpri.org.

Learn with Wiley Blevins in videos from the Sadlier School Phonics Masterclass on Facebook Live Part One and Part Two. Check out his website at www.wileyblevins.com, read A Fresh Look at Phonics at naesp.org, and 10 Important Reseach Findings at Scholastic.
