Literacy Missions Ministry is about spreading God’s love by teaching someone to read and write, teaching someone to speak English, and tutoring children and youth. Visual Phonics is a multi-sensory tool that is helpful when used in each of these areas of Literacy Missions Ministry.
Visual Phonics is a system of forty-five hand shapes and written symbols that look and feel like the sounds they represent. It helps students hear, see, and feel the sounds in our spoken language and involves:
The Alphabetic Principle
Literacy Ministry volunteers can use this valuable tool to teach adults, children, or youth to read and to spell. Volunteers teaching someone to speak English can use Visual Phonics for auditory discrimination and articulation. Visual Phonics is fun and easy to implement, learn, and retain quickly.
