Elkonin boxes are a wonderful activity for beginning readers and writers! Elkonin boxes build phonological awareness skills by segmenting words into individual sounds, or phonemes. To use Elkonin boxes, a child listens to a word and moves a token into a box for each sound or phoneme. In some cases different colored tokens may be used for consonants and vowels or just for each phoneme in the word.

Our school just received a grant for the following research-based reading instruction.
Instruction that's as individualized as our students:
Because every child has unique learning needs, a one-size-fits-all approach will not support all students. Fortunately, Imagine Learning offers personalized, systematic instruction that adapts to each student. For example, the program builds literacy skills in a logical manner so that students learn letters first and words second. Along with this systematic instruction, students receive feedback that helps them answer questions, such as applying a strategy they have been taught or re-reading a section of a book to look for an answer. Imagine Learning further individualizes the student experience with checkpoints that determine how (or if) a student receives additional instruction on a particular skill. These instructional details allow teachers to spend their time where it matters most: teaching.
