UDL Strategies About UDL

  • UDL I 1.1 Offer ways of customizing the display of information
    Instead of providing students with a list of words, teachers can write the targeted sight words on flash cards. Using the flash cards, teachers can sit with the student and have the student read each card that is being held up.
  • UDL II 4.1 Vary the methods for response and navigation
    Instead of providing students with a list of words or holding up the targeted words for the student to read, teachers can have students use the flash cards independently with the teacher or peer recording the correct responses. The student can place the words read correctly in one pile and the words the student does not yet know in another pile.
  • Develop self-assessment and reflection
    Instead of teachers only reviewing the goal of how many sight words the student is expected to know and the amount of current correct responses, teachers can have the student graph their number of correct responses after each activity alongside the expected number of sight words or the student's goal.

Common Core Standards

K.RF.3 Phonics and Word Recognition
K.RF.3 Phonics and Word Recognition
Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. 3.a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant. 3.b. Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. 3.c. Read common high-frequency words by sight. (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does). 3.d. Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.
