Grades K-2.Sound Buddies are visual aids used by teachers to help students learn and identify letter combinations that make the same sound. Knowing the letters that make a specific sound is an important skill because it makes word solving more efficient. Attention to letter combinations and patterns helps students to decode unknown words effectively and to decode by analogy. Students receive explicit instructions in identifying the letter combinations that appear on words and word families. They are trained to use the strategy of looking for what they know inside the word before sounding it out. Set includes eight Sound Buddies combinations (9 in. H), six Living Things Wands, eight Seasonal Wands, six alphabet write-on/wipe-off boards, and pocket chart.
