(Relationship to Child)
Zoo-phonics is a method developed to make children strong readers and
spellers using a “phono” (hearing), “oral” (speaking), “visual” (seeing),
“kinesthetic” (moving) and tactile (touching) – whole brain approach.
The principle of Zoo-phonics maximizes understanding, memory, utilization
and transference to all areas of the reading, spelling and writing process in a
playful and concrete manner. Students actually learn the sounds of the
alphabet and advanced phonemic concepts through an easily understood,
concrete method of presentation.
Zoo-phonics uses animals drawn in the shapes of the letters for ease in
memory. A related body movement is given for each letter. This concrete
approach cements the sounds to the shapes of the letters.
Zoo-phonics also provides a springboard for all other academia such as math,
art, music, cooking/nutrition, social studies, science, grooming, physical
education and sensory/drama.
Educational research repeatedly supports the focus of phonics in early
reading programs, as well as the educational benefits of pictorial mnemonics
and kinesthetic approaches to learning that are unique to Zoo-phonics.
