Spelling Skills_Vowels_Sounds_Level Two_Vowel Consonant T
A tactile method for learning the critical skills of sound analysis and blending
I teach this technique to children aged 4 through to adults. It follows on from Level One Vowels Sounds Lessons and is designed for those dyslexics and dyspraxics who have a firm knowledge of the vowel (A, E, I, O, U) sounds and of the sounds of some consonants (non-vowel letters, such as T). This technique uses a tactile, multi-sensory approach to initiate the blending together of two sounds: a vowel and a consonant. No writing is involved; the activity concentrates purely on engaging the dyslexic or dyspraxic in the process of sound analysis and blending which will be fundamental to spelling and reading ability.
