In Sound Match, the focus is on initial phoneme isolation, a skill that is highly predictive of success in learning to read. One “match” is between the initial sound in a spoken word and the initial sound of picture cues.
The first “match” is between the initial sound in a spoken word and the initial sound of a picture cue.
Here the user hears a spoken word “sat” and identifies the picture that begins with the same sound – seal. Then, Sortegories shows the letter or letters that spell the sound – s.
The second “match” is between the spoken phoneme and the letter or letters that are used to spell the sound
In this task, the user hears a spoken sound /k/ and selects the letter that spells the sound – c.
Perfect practice is effective practice. Sortegories provides the correct answer after the second try. Students always see the correct answer before moving on to the next item. Sortegories also allows unlimited practice on the same activity.
For example, if the user selected b for the sound /s/, Sortegories shows the correct way to spell /s/ with the letter s.
