Classroom Activity: Letter/Sound Drill
Letter/Sound drill helps to reinforce letter and sound correspondence in the broader context of a vocabulary lesson to help learners develop the phonemic awareness that they need in order to sound out words. Learners listen to the sounds that letters make, then the letter/sound correspondence is reinforced as they: trace the letters on the table while saying the sounds, write the letters while saying the sounds, trace letters where they appear in the weekly vocabulary, copy the full words down, and read the words out loud.
