A super-teacher 🤸♀️I know asked me a marvellous question last week:
“Reading science tells us to teach blends as separate sounds. But how does that stand true in the case of ‘DR’ sounding more like a ‘J’. In the word ‘drop’ we totally don’t say ‘d-rop’. I feel like the reading science people don’t ALWAYS get it right. Perhaps there is a reason to teach blends as blends? (Sometimes!).”
I intended to make a 5 minute video to answer her question, and it turned into half an hour… If you know me, you’ll understand why 😆Plenty of demonstration of practical strategies in this one, again starring some mini Sound Foundations members 👫.
Enjoy, learn, discuss and share 🚀 Then come back and tell me what you think, and ask me more questions⁉️
