Reading Phones

I wanted to share a quick and un-original project that will help your pre-schoolers and young elementary students.

I had forgotten how practical and fun reading phones are for new readers until the girls and I were at one of our marathon home depot trips.  I was trying to keep the girls smiling and was whispering secrets to them in the long plastic tubing isle.  They thought the game was genius.  I spotted PVC elbows across the isle, and remembered using phones in my teaching days.


I cheated though only used 2 PVC elbows.  Cheap and easy... that's my game.

Here is a little behind the research.  These phones help kids to drown out outside noise and help kids focus on the sounds and words they are forming.


...plus they are fun.
