Mox's Shop Teaches the "Short o" Sound (Virtual Tour)
Stage of Literacy Development:
Stage 1: Beginning Literacy
Letter-Sounds & Phonics, Phonemic Awareness
Motivation for Literacy
Starfall.com is a wonderful resource for teaching children the sounds that the letters make. There are little books, and in this case we've been learning short o. And so, in Mox's Shop some of those high frequency words are isolated and there are little songs to help the children sound out the words and read through the story.

The goal of Starfall at the Computer Center: Mox's Shop Teaches the "Short o" Sound (Virtual Tour) is to help students develop an understanding of the relationships between spoken sounds and written letters.
- Integrating technology into the classroom is an engaging approach to teaching literacy.
