Sounds on this CD are intended to focus the child on the listening process. This is a pre-reading activity which leads to phonemic awareness. Identifying animal sounds (a cat or dog etc.) as well as everyday sounds (brushing teeth, rain etc.) will encourage the child to enjoy naming the sounds, as a precursor to becoming sensitive to the phonemes of the English language. This is an enjoyable activity which can be done time and time again and is interactive fun for parents, teachers and children. The CD leads into the common sounds of the alphabet and identifying first and last sounds in simple words, as well as a catchy alphabet sounds song for children and adults to sing together.
