This material was developed based on the science of reading, phonemic awareness which includes the principles of:
- Segmenting sentences into words,
- Compound words into separate words
- Words into syllables
- Syllables into isolated phonemes
- Introduction of letters and their sounds
This shelf work provides follow up for word segmentation into separate phonemes.
Ideally, it is intended for use prior to the introduction of sandpaper letters. The task involves children placing markers into sections representing phonemes of each picture.
Includes 15 picture cards printed on thick plastic with all the corners rounded, a set of transparent markers, along with three Elkonin boxes made from 1/8" thick premium acrylic. Acrylic comes with protective covering that must be peeled prior to using.
