    My name is Emma, I’m from Adelaide and I’m about to embark on my first teaching role with my own class. I have taught part-time before, working one day a week with one teacher Yr. 2 and one day a week in another class Yr. 3. I have also team taught for a year before but I have never had my own class. I’m excited to learn more to help my Yr. 2 students.

    I am reading Speech to Print at the moment and feeling a bit overwhelmed with the content that references the IPA, so I’m looking forward to finishing this course with a better understanding of what I need to know.

    Thank you for the comprehensive and easy to understand explanation of the IPA Lyn! This has helped me understand why my Aboriginal students are writing a “k” instead of “g”- they’re not hearing the voiced sound. With this understanding I can explain this better and we can practice saying the words and listening for the sound, as well as feeling what our mouth is doing. Hopefully this can help hone in on the phonemes better for improved writing of graphemes.
