Phonics Phones to the Rescue

These are our new, beautiful, and unique only to our class, Phonics Phones. They were made by two parent/grandparent volunteers. Christie's grandfather and Gavin's dad took the time to construct these handy reading tools. They are AWESOME!!!! Below, you will see the kids using them for the first time. As the students whisper read into the phone, they can clearly hear their reading voices. They loved hearing themselves read aloud. Eventually, each student will have two... one for home and one for school.

Did you see the colors? The boys got camo Phonics Phones, and the girls got pink zebra ones. I can't brag on our sweet volunteers enough! We are so lucky to have them as a part of our learning community!
