Iconic Representation -Lev Vygotskys Sociocultural Theoretical Perspective Study Results Individuals improved over time regardless of which group they were in. The results of the repeated measures ANOVA indicate that there was a significant interaction between the Phonics Dance and basal phonics programs concerning letter sound, phoneme segmentation and non-sense words. Non-sense Words There was a significant interaction between the Phonics Dance and basal phonics program [F (2, 72) = 5.761, p = .019].

Implications Integrating several word recognition skills within the phonics lesson may assist children in making the connection between the skills and how they are interrelated. Implementing systematic phonics instruction through the Phonics Dance or basal phonics program may assist children that have difficulty decoding words. The pace of the Phonics Dance program may support quicker acquisition of word recognition skills. Limitations Non-randomized sampling was utilized. The amount of observations in the basal phonics classrooms were fewer than the observations conducted in the Phonics Dance classrooms. There were no measures concerning motivation or selfefficacy. Other print literacy skills were not examined. The measures for this study were implemented at three time points first week of school, after eight weeks of instruction and again after an additional eight weeks of instruction.
