Sound Segmentation Lesson Ideas

  • The number of letters in a word is not the same as the number of sounds. Shoe has 4 letters but only 2 sounds.
  • Make sure you say the sounds - not the letters.
  • Make sure you are using words that are significant to students.
  • This is a difficult task so start with words with no more than 4 sounds.
  • Use counters so that students can see the number of sounds.
