Build Your THRASS Knowledge
24 Consonant Phonemes - Sounds
In this video we explicitly teach the 24 consonant phonemes located on the THRASS chart. Phonemic awareness is important because it is critical for reading and spelling success. We demonstrate and explain the correct articulation and where to place their teeth, lips and tongue. Children are encouraged to repeat the phonemes and build their articulation. Please note that if your child is struggling with a particular phoneme – sound, you can slow it down and get them to mimic your mouth movement. You may even want to provide them with a hand held mirror so they can see their mouth moving.
Recommended THRASS App which can be used to build your child’s phoneme knowledge.
