Happy Human Teacher Tips :)
-I provide students choice for the Elkonin page that he or she wants to use that day.
-I use tokens or small balls of play dough (when we need to spice things up) to manipulate while decoding or encoding a word.
-I call the 3 small circles under the boxes “home base” as a reference of where to set the tokens. My students who love sports, love this phrase!
-After my student reads the letter sounds with the token, I give him a dinosaur to move from left to right on the arrow as he simultaneously reads the whole word.
-Using a “dinosaur voice” for letter sounds or whole word reading (trust me, my students love this!)
