Hi Haley,
I read your question and was wondering if he really is focusing in on the initial sounds of each word. It sounds so simplistic, but LEA's are so short and explicit that I have found by having students really focus in on initial sounds it helps jog their memory for many of the words that they cannot decode, yet remember from the experience. This has worked for me with my Kinders with little phonics knowledge until later in the year. Not sure if this helps.

        Thank you for clearing this up. I also had the same question as Haley because I have a student (well actually quite a few) who do not speak grammatically correct so I was unsure how to proceed.

          I would have also corrected my students. I understand that we are trying to connect spoken word to text. Glad to know this!
