A Multi-Sensory Approach to Teaching Word Patterns
Letter Trays and Letters - blue represents consonants, yellow represents vowels and green represents the letter y that can be either a consonant or a vowel. Implement today with word cards and short and long word printables! Extend activity to include other word patterns.
Add a silent e and change the sound of the first verb from short to long. Now the verb says its name! This is a multi-sensory approach to teach phonics: picture word support (visual), placing the beads on the letters and moving the letter cards to make the correct words - kinesthetic (movement/touch), and reading the words aloud (auditory).
