This CD-DVD is one of 5 sets we provide that young children can learn complete patterns of phonics. All sets are created especially to help children develop their reading readiness skills in a unique and effective way. Programs are all designed by certified teachers and professional musicians. This CD-DVD set teaches young children the sounds of each letter in the alphabet. Children will learn to listen to language and manipulate, or play with letter sounds that is a very important step for children before decoding and sounding out words. These original songs also tap into children's interest for verse, rhythm, and music.
My kindergarten students have enjoyed watching and listening to the Let's Start Smart-Learning to Read Series. They were able to sing along with the DVD the first time because of the repetition of the letter sounds. They delight in the comical illustrations and catchy lyrics. As a teacher, I know that they are learning the kindergarten standards in a fun and innovative way. I am able to reinforce the specific letter sounds and vocabulary that I'm introducing or reviewing. There are many ways to differentiate my instruction with the CD's and DVD's, and my students are using various learning styles and multiple intelligences with each song and activity. I'm recommending these CD's and DVD's to the K-3 teachers at my school and district! --Tanja Villamor, Kindergarten Teacher
Start Smart music is the best kept secret to learning. This unique tool makes learning fun and exciting. My two daughters look forward to listening to the songs all the time. It makes them excited and energized. --C. Vidinhar, Mother of Kristen, 4 and Kiran, 6
