Extract from the Magic Boxes Set A
(second book in a set of three)
The /SH/ phoneme activity pack is part of the Magic Boxes explicit, systematic spelling program. Each pack consists of an initial list of words and uses the elkonin boxes to ensure students hear all sounds in each word. Words with an asterisk are tricky words and have a colourfully illustrated mnemonic to support their learning.
The list is followed and supported by several activity sheets to consolidate the learning of each phoneme.
The /sh/ pack is the first of the consonant digraph packs. It consists of 10 activities for the initial /sh/ phoneme and 10 for the final /sh/ phoneme.
The Magic Boxes Spelling Program is an explicit and systematic program designed to help, guide and teach spelling in the early years.
Full program available from All Saints' College, Perth. WA
