Kids race the clock to say letter sounds before hearing the answers. They'll giggle along as they name the letters heard in silly sentences. Combining letters to make words comes next. And at last, after practicing with common sight words, it's time to read stories composed of simple sentences! The attention-grabbing on-screen mouth (Letter Sounds Video – DVD) shows students how to correctly form each sound.
