Sound boxes can be powerful tools for helping students learn how to hear and record sounds in words. Using them can lead to greater independence in writing and improve students’ ability to use phonics and decoding strategies when reading. In this video blog, I discuss using sound boxes during guided writing. You can also download the handout below with sample word study lessons to use in your own guided writing activities.
You can find the Sound Box Card, Plastic Write-On Sleeve, and Literacy Footprints Kindergarten Journal used in the video at the Pioneer Valley Books website. Also, follow this link to watch my first video blog about using sound boxes during word study.
