  • From Episode 2

    Your students are taught to hear a sound, and then select the correct letters (phonetic element). Make sure you see all three activities: hearing & seeing the sound & letters together, clicking on the letters representing the sounds, and picking out the letters (phonetic element) from other letters.

  • From Episode 10

    Your students are taught to say the sounds that go with each phonetic element, and are then taught to say the sounds that they blend into recognizable words. This is a critical strategy for sounding-out words. After saying the word out loud, be sure to click on the character that said the word like you did!
