Now, I'll be honest I do not know all of the signs and I do not teach all of the signs to my kiddos. I know that in order for it to be effective I should implement the strategies with fidelity. I wasn't trained on it and I was just talking with Mrs. H about them one day. I asked her to show me the signs for the vowels. For many of my kids short o and u are so difficult to remember and differentiate from other sounds. It was so neat to see when they were sounding out a letter and I knew they were confused and I would show them a sign with my hands and they'd remember. Do any of you use them?
(I found this on Pinterest. The teacher goes through the alphabet but there are also signs for digraphs, r-controlled vowels, etc.)
