Kindergarten Letter-Sound Fluency and Multi-Sensory Intervention
MetadataShow full item record
This action research study tracks the letter-sound fluency of 21 kindergarten students from an upper middle class urban elementary school in the Pacific Northwest over an eight-week period. A multi-sensory intervention was established to practice letter sound fluency. A timed test was administered every two weeks to determine how the number of sounds students could say correctly in one minute was impacted by the intervention. Results from the intervention show that the average number of sounds correctly produced in one minute increased from 18 to 23, accuracy percentage increased from 80% to 92%, and the average time per letter response improved from 2.63 seconds to 1.50 seconds. These results, including students’ positive responses about the process, suggest multi-sensory intervention is promising for literacy growth in kindergarten.
