    5 components of Reading
    The FAB 5

    Phonemic Awareness:
    hearing and producing the separate sounds in words, segmenting words into their separate sounds, blending individual sounds into words, and recognizing words that sound alike or different

    Phonics:
    relationship between letters in the spelling of words and the sounds of spoken language

    Fluency:
    is recognizing the words in a text rapidly and accurately and using phrasing and emphasis in a way that makes what is read sound like spoken language

    Vocabulary:
    words we need to know to communicate with others-there are four types of vocabulary (listening, speaking, reading, and writing)

    Comprehension:
    constructing meaning that is reasonable and accurate by connecting what has been read to what the reader already knows and thinking about all of this information until it is understood
