Online English Language Development (ELD Level 1)

Module 3: ELD Level 1 Foundational Literacy Skills

The absence of a strong foundation in basic literacy skills is often why English learners struggle to redesignate even after many years of study. The ELD 1 Foundational Literacy Skills module is designed to build skills that support oral and written fluency. These include phonics and phonological awareness concepts such as sound-symbol relationships, syllables, and blending/segmenting.

While these skills are traditionally taught in early elementary, we made sure to use content and stories that are age-appropriate and relevant to older students.
