The Alphabet Linking Program is perfect for anyone needing a multi-sensory way to help struggling learners connect the letter sounds with the letter shape. Let’s face it, learning the letter sounds and names and matching them to the letter shape is an exercise in memorization. Many of our struggling readers have a hard time with memorizing. We need to teach this skill in a way that makes sense to them and helps them remember what they are learning.
Based on current research, The Alphabet Linking Program embeds visual mnemonics into the letter shape so that children can see the letter as something that makes sense to them. For example, the letter ‘s’ has always been easy for children to learn because it looks like a snake and when we say the word ‘snake’ we hear the s sound. Children link the sound with the shape of the letter.
The Alphabet Linking Chart displays all the embedded lower-case letters on one 8.5” x 11” chart for easy reference. The lower-case letters are used as these are the ones children see most often in books and will need to know first when they learn to read (Bursuck & Damer, 2015). The chart is intended for public display so that the children can reference it when they are learning their letters and sounds.
In this resource, you will ONLY have the Alphabet Linking Charts (Indigenous and Non Indigenous versions).
