Phonic All Star Floor Frieze

The kids practice their skills at remembering the speech sounds and articulating them accurately by jumping on the Phonic All Star floor frieze. This is the same task that you can do when flipping your level 1 flashcards to practice all the 24 consonants and all the 22 vowel sounds.

Club Yicketty Yak is developed and undertaken by qualified and experienced Speech Pathology professionals.  The group aims to support children who are diagnosed with autism, down syndrome, hearing impairment, dyspraxia, phonological delays or disorders, articulation impairments, speech impairment, language delays or disorders, auditory processing impairment, dyslexia, dysgraphia, reading difficulties and writing difficulties.

Children jump on the 46 character pads that represent the 46 speech sounds. Carly Fahey, our Speech Pathologist, is helping Connor to pronounce remember the sound and pronounce it accurately.

We support the children to form the sounds correctly using the right placement of their lips, tongue, teeth and whether to turn their voice on or off. We also cue the sound using the Phonic All Star hand signal.  Children practice all sounds until they are fast and automatic. The speed of this accuracy is one of our “winged keel” features as this enables the children to have this self knowledge about their phonological systems and how to make their own corrections in their speech.

The hand signal really helps children to retrieve the speech sound from their memory because they tend to lay in to their mind visual memories of the hand signal that are stronger than “auditory (heard) memories”. They also tend to learn memories in the movements in their body (kinaesthetic memories) that help them to program the auditory-phonological memories for the speech sound. They can also benefit from these hand signals being presented as a sequence to show them how a word needs to be said correctly.

The children complete the forest walk around the floor frieze to practice their sound retrieval skills. This supports the development of the literacy skills for early years reading and spelling.

We have to remember that some children with speech impairment have a listening impairment as being central to their challenges so they may not hear and/or process speech clearly as we do.

This is one of the “winged keel” features that support the children to learn and hold information that was very difficult to learn
