Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way - Foundation Font
Alphabet the Multi Sensory Way - Foundation Font

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 product is also available in eBook format here (foundation font) and here (cursive font). This publication is mentioned within the ‘Whole School Literacy Strategy’ booklet on pages 5-8.
