Picture aids for letter sounds

Recommended Posts

For anyone needing good pictures to help their child remember letter sounds, the first Laubach book may help. For example, for a, there is a picture of an apple with the letter a drawn into the apple. For w, there is a woman holding up her arms and a w traced over her arms. For o, they have a letter o drawn over an olive. (For an o memory aid, I personally like, "What does the dentist have you say when you open your mouth? What shape is an open mouth?")


Anyway, here is the ISBN:


The Laubach Way to Reading Skill Book 1: Sounds and Names of the Letters,

©1981 [1991], ISBN 0-88336-901-X

by Frank C. Laubach, Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, and Robert S. Laubach.


The 1991 version has a more modern font with an a like an o with a line on the right side, the 1981 version has a Times Roman type of font.


Also, they supposedly have a chart you can order, but I didn't see how, one place you can order the 1991 books is here, you can also find them through Alibris or ABE books.
