At School

Letterland phonics covers all 44 sounds in the English language and their major recurring spelling patterns.  

The step-by-step guides for Pre-K through Grade Three and core teaching resources provide everything you need for direct phonics instruction. Learning is engaging - that's the difference!

Introduce the alphabet letter shapes and sounds, expand vocabulary and explore phonemic awareness. With songs and actions for all the alphabet, this is a wonderfully multi-sensory approach to learning for Pre-K students.
