CVC Sound Boxes build phonemic awareness and phonological awareness skills by segmenting words into individual sounds, or phonemes. To use Sound Boxes, a child listens to a word and moves a token into a box for each sound (phoneme).
Students build phonemic awareness and phonological awareness by segmenting words into sounds or syllables (which is not always the number of letters).
1. Pronounce the word slowly, stretching it out by sound.
2. Ask the student to repeat the word.
3. Have the student count the number of phonemes in the word, not necessarily the number of letters. For example, cat has three phonemes and will use three boxes. /c/, /a/, /t/
4. Direct the student to slide one colored counter, unifix cube, etc.
in each circular space of the Sound Box as he/she repeats the word.
