Katrine Elliott, Speech Pathologist has developed a handy reference tool for kids to use at home and at school to support them with their skills at learning the speech sounds and what graphemes or letter patterns that match to.
These are FREE in your CLUB YICKETTY YAK PACKS when you attend the speech therapy program. They are also available as part of the PHONIC ALL STAR PACKS or sold separately for $8.00 (A4 size) and $15.00 (A3 teachers size).
As this is part of the Phonic All Star program, it is the zany characters that help the children know the sounds and letters because the characters represent similarities or associations with the speech sounds. Watch this video to learn more about the folder guides from Katrine Elliott-Speech Pathologist-as she explains how to integrate the tool to assist your child to read and spell.
The folder guide is equipped with the total 46 speech sounds in the Australian Phonetic Alphabet which is essential when learning to speak, listen, read, spell and write. There are 26 consonant phonemes and 22 vowel phonemes. If a student is taught literacy using only the 26 alphabet letters approach, they will miss vital ingredients in the recipe for success in learning to read and spell. It is like doing maths without learning 7, 13 and 18 and wondering why your maths just doesn’t add up.
It is loaded with useful features as there is also phonetic theory about the manner of how these sounds are made and the layout helps you to remember which sounds were voiceless and which were voiced. Join our Phonic All Star Club to get some tips on how to use the program to help your child the best way that you can. We also give away freebees every month…so don’t miss out in joining up for the FREE listing by putting your name and details in the port to the left (web browsers) or at the bottom (androids-iphones). You will then hear how this is used as a tool to help learning of speech sounds in speech therapy and in literacy development tasks.
