How to use Sound Boxes in Guided Writing

Sound boxes (also called Elkonin boxes) are a useful tool for helping students hear
and record sounds in words. By using sound boxes in word study, you teach children
the process of hearing and recording sounds in sequence. Once you have taught the
process during word study, the next step is to use sound boxes during guided
writing when a student needs help writing an unknown word. See the following video
blog for additional suggestions and click here for a handout with word study lessons.
