The Alphabet: Learning 26 Letter Sounds

Automaticity with sounds is critical for reading fluency and comprehension.

Tips Tips

Watch for voiced and unvoiced letter pairs.  (No link)
To pronounce each letter in a pair the mouth position is exactly the same, but the vocal cords in the voice box are activated (voiced) for one letter, and the other letter is a breath sound (unvoiced).  Put your fingers on the front of your throat to feel when the vocal cords are activated.  These are easy letters to mix up!
These pairs include:
b and p
d and t
g and k
v and f
z and s
th (the) and th (thin)
