Sound boxes (also called “Elkonin boxes”) help kids build a strong foundation of pre-reading skills by teaching them how to identify and replace phonemes in words.
This mega pack includes 102 sound boxes giving kids practice sounding out 2, 3 and 4 phoneme words.
To play, students say the word out loud normally once and then stretch out the word slowly. They tap their finger (or slide a manipulative) into a box for each phoneme they hear.
Step up the fun by using the sound boxes with a variety of manipulatives: sliding counting chips, driving in Matchbox cars, squishing balls of playdough, clipping small clothespins, sliding LEGO bricks, or writing an X with a dry erase marker.
Children will soon be able to name and replace phonemes in a snap!
