This set of 35 language toys represents all single-letter sounds A-Z, using high recognition value objects.
Although there are 26 letters in the alphabet, several of them make more than one sound. Here are the letters of note in this 35-piece set:
A, E, I, O, U: both long and short initial sounds are represented
C: both hard and soft C sounds are represented: e.g., Cereal, Cup
G: both hard and soft G sounds are represented: e.g., Guitar, Giraffe
X: In teaching letter sounds, it is not useful to force an artificial "Starts With..." construct onto the alphabet. No English word starts with X making its typical and most useful "xssss" sound. In keeping with our focus on teaching useful letter sounds for the purpose of beginning reading skills, we have instead included high-recognition objects that use X in its typical way, e.g., heXagon, siX, foX, taXi, T-ReX.
Y: all three Y sounds are represented: e.g., Yogurt, babY, butterflY
Included: 1 NEW organic cotton storage bag containing 35 hand-selected upcycled toys, representing 35 sounds. Select miniature, tiny toys, or toddler-safe.
