This high quality teaching aid is for teachers and parents to use instead of paper based 'flash cards' as part of the process of teaching children the sounds of letters and letter combinations. It compliments the synthetic phonics approach to teaching child literacy (see below for more details).Used either with an individual pupil, or perhaps displayed through an interactive white board for groups, a teacher can choose a selection of letters and then go through them until they are learnt. The selection can be displayed in order* or randomised according to choice. Also, the selection can be set to 'Autoscroll' and it will circulate through the chosen letters until stopped.Teachers also have the option to play the sounds associated with the letters and words if required.In addition to the letter sounds a teacher can choose pictures with a word containing the letters to illustrate it.All words used are phonically regular and the fonts used are appropriate for school use.* For ease of use, there is a choice of letter selection screens, one that follows the UK Government's 'Letters and Sounds' scheme and another for Oxford University Press's 'Read Write Inc' scheme. If you are using a different scheme, use which suits you best.About Synthetic Phonics-----------------------------Phonics is the method of teaching reading by learning what sounds letters represent and using these to work out what a word is by unpicking the individual sounds that make it up.
