Eyewords Orthographic Sight Words, Set 1, Words 1-50 have been created to accompany Eyewords Multisensory Sight Words. This resource is designed to enable learners to connect something new with something they already know. By listening and speaking students have learned word pronunciation and through the multisensory-contextual component of Eyewords, they have learned meaning and context for abstract words. These elements are stored in a learner’s long term memory.
Orthographic mapping then enables learners to map (connect) the sounds of words they already have acquired language and meaning for. The sounds in a word (phonemes) are segmented and connected to the letter sequence of the word (graphemes). Learners then permanently store the connected sounds and letters of words (along with their known meaning) as instantly recognizable sight words.
This resource is particularly helpful for learning words that are tricky to decode. Using the flash and heart word method, students learn to segment phonemes, map graphemes and blend sounds.
