How it Works

  • Learn to form each letter shape with your finger
  • Play games to blend letter sounds into first words
  • Includes upper case letter names
  • Multisensory learning by UK specialist teachers
  • Letter sounds are introduced in six color-coded stages
  • 1. s/a/t/p
    2. i/n/m/d
    3. g/o/c/k
    4. e/r/h/b
    5. u/f/l/j
    6. v/w/x/y/z/qu

  • Each stage has its own game, using the letters you have learnt to build sounds into words
  • Games progress from three letter words to four and five letter words, e.g. cat, drum, sting
  • Multisensory learning is more effective by linking images to sounds and actions
