Communication through reading, writing and speaking has been around for thousands of years. During primitive times, we have learned that communication did take place in order for man to survive, as it does now, but our understanding of what was actually said during those primitive times isn’t quite clear. We are lead to believe what research has suggested about how these early humans survived and their dire need to communicate in their rugged and often dangerous environment.
Although sounds of communication played a significant part for primitive man, it is possible to imitate the “groaning,” “cooing,” and/or “barking” that might have been made for them to communicate with each other during that time. Over thousands of years, humans have continued to master the art and their ability to be heard, primarily, by means of communicating through the use of “sound words.”
Communication and speech are very much related. The human ear and the human voice are also related when it comes to speech and communication. Throughout this unit, I will attempt to explain and successfully show how the use of “Onomatopoeia” and the combination of the voice, the ear, and speech can help children become great readers and writers.
The emphasis on involving children to read and write in the form of “Onomatopoeia” must begin with their ability to hear and say what they believe may make a sound. Children at an early age need to develop the ability to communicate effectively.
To begin teaching any lesson and have it end in success, it is important for children to have the tools that are necessary in order for success to take place. “Onomatopoeia” is poetry and a language all its own. We are all exposed to sound and these sounds have names. Many children and adults probably never knew that there is a name for the sounds we hear. With this in mind, it is essential to explore the interesting and slightly varied meanings of the word
