So in First Grade we don’t actually teach spelling. Nevertheless, I have found that encoding practice greatly benefits my kiddo’s phonemic segmentation skills while reinforcing their sound spelling relationship knowledge. Enter, the Alligator Encoding Boogie!!!! I’ll be using this at Centers whenever my little'uns need some good old fashioned segmenting and encoding practice. Hope you can use it, too!
