Phonics First® Level I - Livestream

Prerequisite: None

Appropriate Audience:

• Kindergarten through 3rd grade: General Education (Tier 1: Small group)

Instead of taking the Phonics First® course, which is a mirror of the Structures® course, we strongly recommend taking the Level II course instead. Level II includes Phonics First® materials, details on teaching Phonics First®, and much more.  LEARN ABOUT the LEVEL II COURSE here.


This comprehensive and highly intensive course qualifies teachers to bring Orton-Gillingham multisensory instruction to their classrooms. Phonics First® transforms beginning, struggling, at-risk readers, and students with dyslexia and learning differences into skilled learners through our effective, fun, multisensory approach to reading and spelling.

A Brainspring Instructor teaches this course live in real time via Zoom (access and use details are provided upon registration). Participants log in on each course date and time to participate. Courses allow for interaction with the instructor and other course participants in order to retain the hands-on learning approach. Course sessions also include small-group discussions, practice sessions, and question and answer opportunities.

NEW FEATURE: Course participants receive one-year, online access to the Phonics First® Course Review. This on-demand access allows teachers to review content, skills and strategies for all lesson components.

Participants learn to teach:

• Alphabet and phonological awareness strategies

• Basic and advanced phonetic concepts for decoding and encoding

• A Three-Part Drill for structured review

• Tactile/kinesthetic spelling techniques for phonetic and non-phonetic words

• Syllabication for multisyllabic words (8 Syllable Types/3 Syllable Patterns)

• Higher-level spelling skills

• Oral reading/connected text fluency

Additional benefits:
• Guidance with lesson planning and classroom implementation

• Opportunities for hands-on lesson practice with other participants

• Emphasis on teaching reading to beginning, struggling, at-risk readers, and students with dyslexia and learning differences using Orton-Gillingham methodology

• Complimentary Brainspring Members Area Access: reproducible lesson resources and activities

Upon completion, participants will:
• Receive a document of completion

• Be prepared to teach Phonics First® phonics (decoding and encoding) content to kindergarten through 5th grade students at all Tiers

• Be eligible for Level II and to apply for Brainspring’s nationally recognized certification program
