Identification of the printed word begins with a visual process that concentrates on the visual forms of the letters that make up the word. After the initial identification of the word is made, it is the context of the sentence that may determine word meaning and even the pronunciation of the word. For example, the word fall can either refer to the act of moving from a standing to a prone position on the floor or to a season of the year. The word read will be pronounced differently depending on the context of the sentence.

Sound of the Day For some special fun with primary students, the students or you can select a “sound of the day” to use during the day. For example, on the “t” day, students would start all of their noun words with a “t” sound instead of the letter that the word would normally start with. ” Students will have fun trying to match the special sound of the day to the nouns they use around the classroom that day. Listen, Listen Help students look at words and isolate the sounds or phonemes that they hear in various parts of a word.

Dr. Seuss books, ABC books, or repetitive books such as Bill Martin’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear (1970) or Margaret Weis Brown’s Goodnight Moon (1947) are also helpful for teaching a sense of rhythm and pattern. More complex books should also be read so that children continue to expand their vocabulary and sense of language development.
