When I first started teaching kindergarten, I began to notice that students were able to retain sounds when they saw a the letter, heard me say the letter sound, repeated the letter sound, and used an A.S.L. hand gesture to go along with it (auditory, visual, verbal, and kinesthetic). Then, when I began teaching upper grade students with dyslexia to learn how to read, I used the same routines with them and discovered that most of them were decoding words while using the A. S. L. signs!!!!
These posters are a great resource to use when teaching letter and sound correspondences.
