Sound-A-Long DVD

One of the best phonics activities available, the YesPhonics™ Sound-A-Long DVD takes your student/s out of the doldrums and into action, with a verbal coach, visual triggers, and fun mnemonic illustrations.

The 26-minute YesPhonics Sound-A-Long DVD helps students learn how to read, write and spell with tools for them to repeat what they see and hear. This DVD takes teaching phonics to a whole new level, with crisp, clear and colorful illustrations that aid in memory retention. Students learn the sound sequences of the phonograms through graphic illustrations and mnemonic, phonics learning codes. The Sound-A-Long DVD also features memory-aid catch phrases, which help the students tremendously, by allowing them to easily remember each and every sound of a phonogram.

Mnemonics, Phonics, and 72 Sounds 

The YesPhonics Sound-A-Long DVD presents each of the 72 Orton Phonograms and verbalizes the 45 different sounds heard in the English language. One by one, the student sees each phonogram, hears the sound/s it makes, and then repeats those sound/s. In addition, each phonogram is supported by a fun, colorful and clever illustration that helps embed their learning into their memory.

The unique presentation of the Sound-A-Long DVD, while simple and fun on the surface, is actually promoting deep learning and a comprehensive understanding of all the sounds heard in the English language. The student sees and absorbs all the letters – and combinations of letters – that make those sounds.

Sounds From A-Z, and then Some

As they progress through the Sound-A-Long DVD, students gradually increase their understanding of the phonograms, from the simple to the more complex. The letter /b/, for example, is illustrated in the mnemonic illustration of a bumblebee. Super easy, super fun. Increasing in difficulty, we see the three sounds made by the letter /a/ in the phrase and illustration, ‘have a ball.’ This phonogram is a little harder, but also fun. As illustrated in the phonogram /ie/, learning becomes a ‘piece of pie.’

Students progress through all the phonograms, even learning those with as many as six unique sounds, as illustrated in the phonogram /ough/, which says the sounds in dough, through, tough, trough, sought and bough. By the end of the Sound-A-Long DVD, students have visually and verbally experienced all 72 of the powerful Orton phonograms, giving them the tools they need to decode the English language, as well as a comprehensive understanding of every sound heard in English.

Simple and Effective 

The Sound-A-Long DVD, exclusively from YesPhonics, helps take the challenges out of learning language arts, and makes the English language interesting, easy and fun. Students have the unique opportunity to explore sights, sounds and symbols in an engaging and deep-seated way.

One of the most gratifying things a teacher experiences is when a student learns on their own, works independently, takes initiative, and begins the process of critical thinking. With the visual and auditory tools in the YesPhonics Sound-A-Long DVD, teachers, tutors, and parents can literally sit back and watch their children/students absorb, process and verbalize all the critically important phonograms of the English language.

Twenty-six minutes were never spent learning so much so quickly!
