A framework for the explicit teaching of spelling.
SoundCheck is designed to let children experience success in spelling, by teaching the skill of segmenting words, or breaking words into sounds. The book is easy to use with step-by-step instructions for each lesson and lists of words for each of the 26 units.
Each of the 26 units provides a sequence of letter choices to ensure children hear and identify each sound and letter. Vowels are gradually introduced and contrasted as they are the more difficult sounds in literacy learning. SoundCheck has specific units on sh, ch, th, ck endings, ss, ll, zz, plus initial and final blends.
