Visual and auditory discrimination, letter formation
This teacher resource book series has been developed with the understanding that graphophonics is an integral part of the reading, spelling and writing process. The order in which the initial sounds appear in this package is based on the frequency of use in spoken and written language.
To prevent confusion, the order also provides intervals between activities with similar phonemes (e.g. m, n) and graphemes (e.g. b, d) and between short vowel activities (a, e, i, o and u).
