Multisensory Monday: Paw Prints for Diphthong AW
Posted by Stephanie Castillo on 8th Apr 2019
Diphthong. Even pronouncing this word is tricky! This weeks’ Multisensory Monday activity uses the keyword “paw” to help students recall the /aw/ sound. If you have students that are fans of animals and adventure, this activity is the right up their alley.
According to good old Webster, a paw is “the foot of a quadruped (such as a lion or dog) that has claws.” Furthermore, a track is simply a footprint left in dirt, snow, mud, etc. Students may not know the difference between a paw and a track, and if they enjoy learning about animals, why not! They will reinforce /aw/ throughout the entire discussion. High five to that! Or high four, three, etc.
