Castiglioni-Spalten, Maria L.; Ehri, Linnea C.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v7 n1 p25-52 2003
Examines whether kindergartners who were taught to segment words into phonemes either by monitoring articulatory gestures or by manipulating blocks would benefit in their ability to read and spell. Suggests that awareness of articulatory gestures facilitates the activation of graphophonemic connections that helps children identify written words and secure them in memory. (SG)
