how it works

Talking Letters Overview

Talking Letters provides parents and teachers a tool to teach children the letters of the alphabet and their sounds to build a strong foundation for reading.  Here's how it works:

  • In the Talking Letters program, each letter is associated with a character and a story.

  • As parents and teachers read the stories aloud, children begin to learn that each letter "makes a sound as it talks".

  • To help parents become their child's first and best teacher, each Talking Letters set includes a step-by-step instructional guide so that parents know when and how to introduce each letter as well as activities and games to use. 

  • As children master their letters and sounds, they begin to "make the letters talk" in forming new words.

  • As children begin to read phonetically (recognizing that each letter makes a sound), they are then introduced to sight words (words that are not read by their letter sounds) as they begin to read the 10 sight word books included in the set.

  • Celebrate - your child is reading!
