The purpose of this research is to explore the effects the Open Court phonics instruction has on students' spelling. The current study intends to find the answers to two questions. The first question is: What Open Court phonetic rules and patterns are first grade students using in daily writing and. on spelling assessments? In order to discover this, I will be analyzing two sets of data. At the beginning of the study, a qualitative spelling inventory will be given to determine the students' current stage. I will also look at children's informal journal writing to look for Open Court phonetic rules and patterns. After the study, the same qualitative spelling inventory will be given to measure learning.
