         LETTER SOUNDS 

                                                                                      

It's very important for young children to know the alphabet and the sound each letter makes.  Knowing letter sounds will help you learn to read new words.  Remember parents, it's not C-A-T when reading the word cat, it's ka-aaah-ttt.  Help your child decode words by practicing letter sounds with them.
