CLICK VOWEL LETTER
COMBINATIONS BELOW TO HEAR THEIR SOUND
The links above provide an
excellent way to practice and memorize the essential vowel sounds.
If the person you are teaching to read does not have these sounds
the rate at which they will learn new reading and spelling words will be dramatically
The only exception being the fortunate upper 10%-20% of our readers who
are able to read
no matter which
method they are taught.
HOW TO USE THE
VOWEL SOUND TEACHER ABOVE
1) Click any
letter sound in the table above
2) I will
say the letters and then pause 5 seconds giving you time to say the sound before
I say it.
3) I then
give several word examples and ask you to say it again - this time pausing for
only 2-3 seconds
4) This can be used in
teacher training or adult reading programs -
and is an excellent resource for college professors preparing education
To hear the sounds,
you must have the REAL PLAYER G2 (or higher) installed on your computer.
Download takes approximately 10-15 minutes with a 28K modem and is very easy to do.
You only need to do this once and you'll then be able to hear
all the great teaching audio
and video we are placing on TampaReads.com
Click the DOWNLOAD PLAYER link below -
and scroll to the bottom of the page to
look for the "FREE" Real Audio Player.

No doubt about it -
Children who have all the vowel sounds memorized will learn to spell and read at a much
faster rate. Although we as educators have done a satisfactory job in making sure children have
memorized their basic consonant sounds (b - d - f - etc), we have been unsuccessful in
teaching our children all the essential 31 vowel sounds above. This lack of
complete memorization seriously handicaps children of average and below average reading
ability. Please do whatever it takes to get these sounds memorized for
maximizing student reading progress.
reward any student who is able to say all sounds correctly.
