SOS to Encode! Part 2 utilizes a scaffolded phonics structure in conjunction with Simultaneous Oral Spelling (a multisensory encoding technique). The program utilizes Placement tests to determine exact instruction needed for students and groups, Three levels of intensity and rates of instruction, Ongoing progress monitoring, Multisensory phonics and encoding techniques, Developmentally scaffolded lessons, Pre-Made Lesson Plans, Instructional framework (Scope and Sequence) and a consistent lesson structure.
This program uses The “COPS” self-monitoring strategy, Decoding strategies, Encoding strategies (e.g. Finger tapping phonemes, Spelling Aloud, Simultaneous Oral Spelling, etc.).
By the end of Part 2 of the SOS to Encode!, students will be able to encode, decode, and spell one-, two-, and three-syllable words with short vowels, consonant digraphs, double consonants (-ll, -ss, -zz, -ff), initial consonant blends, and final consonant blends. Through a structured, self-regulation technique with visual supports and mnemonic device, students will be able to review and edit writing for sentence mechanics, as well as, self-regulate mechanics during authentic writing experiences.
