Sample of the Phonological Awareness section: Multisensory Reading Level 1 program
This exercise helps students link the individual sounds to the letter or letters representing those sounds in each word.
- In this exercise students are required to firstly identify the sounds in each of the words currently being learned. It is very important that the student does NOT look at the written text, but relies completely on his/her auditory processing skills.
- If the student has difficulty identifying the individual sounds, together say the word and then gradually say the word slower and slower, drawing out the individual sounds until the student can successfully ‘hear’ each sound.
- Once each sound in the word has been identified, ask the student for the first sound (e.g., “What is the first sound in ‘at’?). After the student has given the correct response (e.g., /a/ NOT /ay/), he/she chooses the letter representing that sound from a choice of four in the first cell. Repeat this process for each of the sounds in the word.
- The final step is for the student to write the word in the box at the end of the row. It is important that as each letter is written that the student says the sound it is representing.
It is strongly recommended that this program be used in conjunction with the Sound Hearing book.
