Have nonreaders that are not responding to phonics instruction ? Color the Sounds uses motion and color to create a fun, multisensory activity that subtly engages the working memory and provides learning experiences that allow struggling readers to achieve that all important degree of success. Color markers are used instead of pencils. Target words are traced, and passages are read in an interactive way. A scaffolded support process allows even the most reluctant readers to participate. Word sorts pull words from the passages so that word-recognition is reinforced with phonics and critical thinking.
The download gives you blackline masters for 5 student booklets. Progress monitoring charts, running record passages, and teacher’s guide are included. Answer key is not included as it is not really necessary. A sample, with instructions, is provided in the preview.
