Abstract

This study focused on improving the blending and segmenting skills of a K4 student through technology-based strategies. This study was designed for a K4 student attending a public, urban Midwestern charter school who is considered a struggling reader. The intervention was conducted over eleven, 60-minute sessions. Data measured the student's response to video clips, interactive texts, Elkonin boxes supplemented with pictures, and online and computer-based games. The student demonstrated increased blending and segmenting skills as a result of the intervention.
