Teaching Phonetic Skills through Body Movement.
Van Osdol, Bob M.; Geiger, Leonard J.
A perceptual motor approach to learning phonics is presented in this teaching guide which includes a screening test and 50 learning games encompassing a wide array of phonics skills. Directionality, gross-motor skills, sensory-motor skills, and auditory and visual perceptual skills may be introduced to the children and taught during the games which are based on moving about on a floor grid according to verbal or visual directions. The total body movement activities require complete attention on the part of the learner and provide benefit to the hyperactive and nonattentive child as well as the "normal" child. (MKM)
