What is segmenting?

How to use Elkonin Boxes?
To use Elkonin boxes, a child listens to a word and moves a token into a box for each sound or phoneme. Students can move a colored circle or write a letter in the corresponding cell of the Elkonin box.
You can reproduce the pages for classroom use only. The fonts I used are free for personal use. Duplication of this resource for commercial purposes or for the entire school is strictly forbidden.
