A program for 4-6 year olds, incorporating Stage 1 phonic concepts.

Students require alphabetic and phonic knowledge in order to embark on the process of learning to read, spell and write. However, rather than letter naming ability, sound knowledge is more important for entry into literacy learning.

Not only are alphabet sounds more important for early literacy, but alphabetic sound ability is the more difficult for students to acquire. For this reason and designed by Speech Pathologists for teachers and parents, Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way aims to establish strong alphabet and phonic sound ability. Within this program for 4 to 6 year olds, a multi-sensory approach to teaching the alphabetic and phonic sounds has been adopted:

  • Students kinaesthetically feel what their mouth is doing when they produce the
    alphabet and phonic sounds.
  • Students see what their mouths look like when their mouths produce the alphabet
    and phonic sounds (via the visual representation of the mouth on each page).
  • Students also visually connect a core picture/word with the alphabet and phonic
    sounds (e.g. ‘mix’, ‘teeth’ and ‘snake’).
  • From an auditory (and phonemic awareness) perspective students identify the
    initial sounds in simple target words (e.g. teeth starts with a “t”).
  • Students move and rehearse a basic action associated with each target picture
    (which also engages a kinaesthetic dimension.)

 

This flip book incorporating Stage 1 phonic concepts features:

  • Simple to use format
  • Card sets explicitly teach the alphabet and phonic sounds.
  • Students feel their mouth making the sounds.
  • A body action is outlined for each sound.
  • An effective and engaging way to teach the alphabet and phonic sounds.
This publication is mentioned within the ‘Whole School Literacy Strategy’ booklet on pages 5-8. This resource is also available in a Foundation Font.

    Maximising literacy development within the Junior Primary

    At PLD we advocate for a strong junior primary process, in which the connections between classrooms and year levels is well organised. Most students require three consecutive strong years of learning in the junior primary to set them up for entry into the ‘content’ curriculum phase of their schooling. This download provides a series of […]

    The Pathway of Pre-Literacy into Early Literacy

    Schools will have literacy results maximized over the long-term when they systematically plan how students progress from pre-literacy (or emergent literacy skills) into their early literacy skills. The two primary areas that will facilitate a smooth transition into early reading and spelling are: Phonemic awareness (and specifically blending for early reading and segmentation for early […]

    Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way – Cursive Font

    A phonemic awareness (onset and rime) blending program, designed to prepare children for reading.

    Phonological awareness (and more specifically phonemic awareness) appears to unlock the mystery of word recognition and spelling. Once a child is conscious of the sounds that comprise words, the mapping of the sounds to the alphabetic system occurs with much greater ease. The phonemic awareness pre-requisite for reading simple regular CVC [consonant-vowel-consonant] words such as ‘fig’, ‘tin’ and ‘mat’ is the skill of blending. First students must learn to blend at an onset and rime level. E.g. ‘Listen carefully and put these sounds together and guess this word:’ ‘f’ (one second pause) ‘ig’?’ Students then learn to blend at the phonemic or individual sound level: E.g. ‘Listen carefully and put these sounds together and guess this word; ‘m’ (one second pause) ‘a’ (one second pause) ‘t’? Answer: ‘mat’. The Phonemic Awareness Skill for Reading: Blending Despite the research supporting the importance of blending, this skill is too often overlooked. The negative side of presenting reading activities without attention to the pre-requisite skill is that it does not set up all children for success. Within Learning to Blend Onset and Rime for Early Years and Foundation, the phonemic awareness skill of blending is targeted. Blending represents an immediate precursor to decoding ability. The colour card sets form the basis of short explicit instruction sessions. The scripted instructions provide clear guidelines on how to effectively teach blending. When this program is used in conjunction with screening this program forms a significant component in a school’s preventative/early intervention strategy.   Includes: A no-preparation required spiral bound A5 full colour flip book. Introduction/Note from the author. Over 40 coloured picture which develop the skill of blending. Each card has specific scripted instructions. A progress check/skill assessment to review readiness for reading. Aim for 2-3 minutes of blending several times a day.
