INSTRUCTION This activity involves students sorting objects into bins according to the letter. Students practice the sound that the first letter of the object is. This activity is effective because it gives students opportunity to associate the letters with words that start with that letter and sound, which increases their understanding of the letters.

INSTRUCTION: In this activity, students sort classroom objects into bins based on the name of the object's initial phoneme. This activity can be modified throughout the year to match instruction and to focus on digraphs and more complex sounds.

ASSESSMENT OF LEARNING In this activity teachers should have vests for students to wear of cards for students to hold of each letter of the alphabet. Class sings a song asking where a letter that makes a certain sound is. The student wearing or holding that letter stands up, the class asks what they say, and the student says the letter sound. Teachers can use this activity as assessment by using a checklist to teach students’ ability to correctly respond when called upon.

INSTRUCTION This teaching strategy helps teachers to introduce letter sounds to their students. Teacher creates cards with the letters sounds and pictures with the chosen letter sounds. The teacher then creates actions that go with the sound. Teacher then shows the students the cards, models saying the sound, and teaches them the action to associate with the sound. This an effective strategy because it gives students visuals and actions to associate with the letter and letter sound.

INSTRUCTION: "Stories, Actions, and Pictures" - helps students build awareness of letter-sounds with an engaging phonics program.

UNDERSTANDING This article examined the instruction of phonics and word recognition used with children with reading disabilities.

ASSESSMENT OF LEARNING This activity requires teachers to select 8-10 words that contain letter-sounds already taught to students. Each student uses a sheet of lined paper and a pencil. Teacher presents word list by showing the Jolly Phonics action for each sound in the word, and students independently record the word on their paper. Teacher uses student work to assess errors and determine which letter sounds require more focus.

INSTRUCTION: By teaching students actions that they can use to remember letter sounds, they can begin to spell words correctly and efficiently. It provides students with an awareness of the relationship between letters and their sounds.

INSTRUCTION Jolly Phonics Approach uses a method to help create student awareness of the individual sounds in spoken words and how these correspond to written letters. The Jolly Phonics Program has five main parts to it. Students learn letter sounds, letter formation, blending letter sounds to start reading, identify sounds and words, and learn to spell words. This program is effective because of its explicit teaching of phonics and letter sounds through an interactive and action-based…
