Merging kinesthetics and language
Because learning is FUNdamental,
Leaping Literacy brings you ... Physical Phonics!
Leaping LiteracyTM was, in part, developed on the concept of Physical PhonicsTM. Laurie Story derived this theory based on first language acquisition whereby language development is always contextual and physical.
For young, emerging readers and for 2nd language learners, having physical, kinesthetic applications of the printed words is not only efficient but FUN. We all learn best when we are engaged and having fun.
In each vowel section and throughout the ABC's, there are Physical PhonicsTM applications. There's at least 1 page devoted to Physical Phonics in each vowel section as well as songs and rhymes for each letter of the alphabet. Here's two samples, one with alliteration, one with the short a vowel sound:
|Physical Phonics: ABC Song: Blow Blue Balloons
Tune: Row Your Boat
Blow, blow, blow balloons. Blow big blue balloons!
Blow big, blow blue! Blow big blue balloons.
Bounce, bounce, bounce balloons. Bounce big blue balloons!
Bounce big, bounce blue! Bounce big blue balloons.
To be sung and used with real, blue balloons!!
Physical Phonics: Short a Vowel: Hand Clap Rap
