Help Elementary-aged Students Improve Their Phonemic Awareness

My students need sound-it-out phonics puzzles and phonics flip books to help with phonological delays.

My Students

As the speech-language pathologist at an elementary school, I work with students with a variety of disabilities. This project focuses on the needs of elementary-aged students with phonological delays.

Twenty of the forty-four students have significant speech-language impairments.

These students are at a high risk for academic difficulties. If a child has difficulty producing the sounds necessary to communicate, they are going to have difficulty learning their letters and sounds necessary for reading and writing. In addition, a phonological delay greatly impacts upon a students ability to be understood in conversation, this can affect them both socially and emotionally.

My Project

The materials requested include Phonics Flip Books. This easy-to-use flip books each focus on a specific spelling pattern, from long and short vowels to blends and digraphs. Students just flip the pages to create six to eight simple words that share the same sound—and build reading and decoding skills as they go!

I am also requesting the Sound It Out phonics puzzles.

These language-building puzzles each have a cute picture clue, plus a matching word divided by phonics sound. Kids fit the pieces together, and build each word sound by sound! Each piece represents a different sound for easy decoding, and the target sound is highlighted for extra reinforcement.
