Phonograms (Exercise 5)
5. Small Movable Alphabets.
- Two partitioned boxes, each with a different colored set
of small cut out letters. The letters are arranged in alphabetical
order in the boxes. Phonogram boxes of picture and word cards
are also used in the following exercise.
- The teacher takes one box of phonogram picture and word cards
to the child's table. She takes out the picture cards, leaving
the word cards in the box. The teacher sets out one picture card
and shows the child how to build it, using the small movable
alphabets. One color is used for the phonogram and the other
color is used for the rest of the word.
- Having built the words, the child can take the word cards
out of the box and use them to check her work.
- A child who does not have much confidence can put the word
cards under the pictures before she begins. She can then copy
the words using the small movable alphabets.
