Sounds Fun Phonics Animated DVD screens

Sounds Fun Phonics is a system of teaching aspects of phonemic awareness and the alphabetic principle. It serves as a reinforcement for a child’s understanding of the relationships between letters and sounds. A strong understanding of phonics is essential for children who are getting ready to learn how to read. These songs and resources help to reinforce some of the most common letter combinations and sounds through engaging music and movement. The music serves to reinforce these basic phonics rules and sound spelling patterns, so that they can learn to read, write, and spell quickly and easily. We recommend using the DVD or CD in combination with the character flash cards for the most effective phonics teaching resource.

Phonics Spelling Patterns covered include: Ai/Ay-Hooray, Ar-Pirate, Au/Aw-Caw, Ch-Choo Choo, Ea/Ee-Whee, Er/Ir/Ur-Tiger, Ew-Monster, Igh-Sailor, Ing-King, Ink-Pink Ink, Oa-Tummy Ache, Oi/Oy-Piggy, Oo-Monkey, Or-Dinosaur, Ou/Ow-Howl, Sh-Quiet Girl, Th-Blowing Raspberries, Unk-Skunk, plus these basic phonics rules: Bossy E, Magic Y, Vowel Walk

Sounds Fun Phonics DVD We recommend using the DVD or CD in combination with the character flash cards for the most effective phonics teaching resource. Here's how it works: The picture cue triggers the memory of a movement that goes with the sound of each combination of letters. When the children are drilled with the flash cards and are asked to respond physically and verbally, they will remember more quickly than without the visual-kinesthetic element. For example, the flashcard that goes with the “sh” sound spelling pattern has a little girl that is holding one finger up in front of her mouth to show the /sh/ sound. When children see this, they mimic the movement and then make the sound.

It's always important to test your device before you make your rental purchase through Vimeo, as we don't have the ability to refund purchases if your device is unsupported or if you have a poor or inconsistent internet connection. Heidi discovered this when she tried to use the videos on her school computer, only to realize the Window's Internet Explorer browser was outdated, and she had to call the district for an update. An easy test is to verify that the movie "trailer" plays well on your device or computer, if it does, you should not have a problem with purchasing a movie.
