Visual Phonics
Parents,
   This is a video that shows kindergarteners doing Visual Phonics.  Visual Phonics is a tool that brings a multi-sensory component to learning sounds.  Both sides of the brain become active when hand shapes are added to the letter sounds, which commits them to memory easier. It is an effective strategy for children as they learn the sounds - which will help them when learning to read.  This is a great strategy for kindergarten and first grade parents to learn as it help their child master letter sounds.  Please click on this link to watch and learn some of the Visual Phonics hand shapes while the kids sing an alphabet song:
