Tapping Out Words

(Wilson Reading Program)

The students tap out the individual phonemes in a word with their fingertips, and then blend the phonemes into a word.            
  • The first sound or phoneme is tapped with your pointer finger and your thumb.
  • The next sound is tapped with your middle finger and your thumb.
  • The next sound is tapped with your ring finger and your thumb. 
  • The next sound is tapped with your little finger and your thumb.
  • Last - blend the sounds together.   

*If you run out of fingers, start again!
