Chalk Talk: What Are Elkonin Boxes?

Elkonin boxes are often helpful when students are learning sounds. Students receive a piece of paper or card with boxes as well as markers or chips. They are to mark a box for each sound that they hear in a word their teacher pronounces. They are not marking the number of letters in a word but the number of sounds. Therefore, in the word c-a-t, they would identify three sounds, and in the word sh-i-p—although it has four letters—they would mark three sounds as well. The teacher should say the word slowly at first, stretching out each sound. Corresponding pictures often accompany the Elkonin Boxes. This is a simple yet effective activity that can aid in teaching phonological awareness.
