Reflection: High Expectations P is for Pirates, Pajamas and Pugs - Section 1: Why P?


I think that it is really, really, really important that we teach our students how to properly enunciate each sound; when we do this, we lessen the likelihood that they mispronounce sounds.  Also, when we do this, we are on our way to correcting speech difficulties!
These are the important things we MUST teach our students about letter sounds:
Which sounds are voiced?
Which sounds are voiceless, and only require air?
Which sounds are made with teeth, or tongue or lips?
When we teach our students the above things about each sound, they are much more likely to correctly produce each sound and therefore more likely to have better and more intelligible speech!  It's not too hard for us to remember and it doesn't take much time to plan for; however, this could change the face of how students learn to produce sounds in our classrooms!
