Fred fingers for spelling
I want to write the word "fright"
We hold our hand flat, palm facing us. This is my piece of paper
I sound out the word and hold up the number of fingers to match the sounds in my word
I would hold up 4 fingers starting with my index finger
I use my pencil hand to pinch my fingers as I say the sounds in the word
Start at the index finger. (If the word had 5 sounds I would use my thumb as well)
f / r / igh / t There are 4 sounds in fright.
I then write the word down by fred talking the word.
We used our fingers to help us spell.
