Elkonin Boxes: Hearing and Recording Sounds

Beginning, Middle or End? What:

Elkonin boxes for isolating and recording sounds during a 3-5 minute activity. Use one-on-one or in small skill groups. Why? Use the attached worksheet to provide practice for students who are having difficulty hearing and locating sounds in words, particularly short vowel sounds and blends. Assessment results are indicating a need for this type of activity for at-risk students. How? Example: Say a word (cat) and/or show the student(s) a matching picture. Ask the students to repeat the word, stretching it out "like a rubber band." Prompt: "Where do you hear the short a sound, at the beginning, middle, or end of the word? " Students then record the letter "a" in the appropriate box. If a child shows a weakness for most or all short-vowel sounds, it would be more beneficial to "over teach" one particular sound per activity, rather than mix them up. Focus on one sound only.
