Essentials – Step 1: Read Sounds


Click through the sound cards by clicking the arrow bar  to the right of the slide or clicking anywhere on the slide itself. To move to a previous slide, click the  arrow bar to the left of the slide.

Online teaching tips: Hearing individual errors may be challenging. Stop at sounds students typically have difficulty with-such as b/d, y, all vowels, letters with multiple sounds, and tricky blends-and trace these with all students while they say the sound aloud. Model finger tracing on a contrasting surface in front of your webcam. Remind students to look at the letter on the screen while tracing.

Hear the accurate pronunciations of vowel and consonant sounds under the Songs & Sounds tab or in the Practice Sounds files in the Media Kit flash drive.
