Effectiveness of the Phono-Graphix[TM] Method on Spelling Achievement.
Donaldson, Megan F.
The purpose of this study was to determine if the Phono-Graphix[TM] method, a reading program based on sounds, could help improve the spelling achievement of two kindergarten students. The students, identified as good readers/poor spellers, participated in eight 40-minute sessions. Their spelling skills were assessed before and after the implementation of the Phono-Graphix[TM] method and it was determined that their spelling achievement improved. Both children went from mid-late letter name to early-mid within word pattern spellers. The main feature of improvement was the marking of the long vowel. The results indicate that the Phono-Graphix[TM] reading program was able to raise the spelling performance of two kindergarten students with a discrepancy in their reading and spelling achievement. Appendixes provide three tables of data. (Author/RS)
