Another class favorite, the OO Monkey song demonstrates the Sounds Fun Phonics program for teaching phonics through music, movement and a unique set of flash cards as a visual cue for a complete multi-sensory learning experience. There are 25 primary sound spelling patterns, plus 3 basic phonics rules, in this program.
The flash cards are designed to help children learn to visually recognize all 25 letter combinations and their sounds, each with a corresponding character and hand-motion. When the children are drilled with the flash cards and are asked to respond physically and verbally, they tend to remember much more quickly than without the kinesthetic element.
Phonics Spelling Patterns covered include: Ai/Ay-Hooray, Ar-Pirate, Au/Aw-Caw, Ch-Choo Choo, Ea/Ee-Whee, Er/Ir/Ur-Tiger, Ew-Monster, Igh-Sailor, Ing-King, Ink-Pink Ink, Oa-Tummy Ache, Oi/Oy-Piggy, Oo-Monkey, Or-Dinosaur, Ou/Ow-Howl, Sh-Quiet Girl, Th-Blowing Raspberries, Unk-Skunk, plus these basic phonics rules: Bossy E, Magic Y, Vowel Walk
