Zoo-phonics is a, "Kinesthetic Method for Teaching Phonics, Reading, Spelling, and Using Literature."
Copy writes Zoo-phonics, Inc.
The 26 letters of the alphabet in zoo-phonics are merged with animals whose names begin with their corresponding letter. Each animal/letter also has a related body signal.
When intoducing each letter the students will be shown the lowercase form of the letter first, since lowercase letters are used 95% of the time in print. When the lowercase letters are mastered the students will then move onto the uppercase letters.
