Product Description
More intervention and early literacy materials from Ms. Merry Mac!

Elkonin boxes are a great tool for beginning and struggling readers to build phonological awareness by segmenting words into sounds. They help students practice listening for and counting the number of phonemes in a word—though this is not always the same number of letters. Mastering this skill orally lays the foundation for both decoding and spelling.

Elkonin boxes are a great addition to a kindergarten or first grade guided reading group as well as a useful intervention tool for struggling readers and writers in other elementary grades.

To use, the teacher gives a word and the students push a stone, counter, penny, or other small object into the squares below the pictures as they say each sound in the word. Remember, one push for one sound, so digraphs like /sh/ count for one sound!

The Level 3 pack includes over 100 full page and quarter sheet pictures as well as a phonetic guide to the words depicted. Cards can be laminated or put in sheet protectors for use at tables, in a binder or during reader's workshop. This pack is geared toward advancing students who are ready for a mix of 3, 4, and 5 phoneme words with blends at beginning or end of a word.

Use Level 1 or 2 packs for students who are just starting out!
