Word Caper™ DVD
There are more consonants sounds than there are consonants in the alphabet. A consonant digraph is a pair of consonants that stand for a single sound (ch, sh, th, wh).
Spelling begins with regular short vowel sounds (cap) and long vowel sounds (with silent e, cap becomes cape). Finally, children learn the rules and patterns of vowel pairs (ee), digraphs (ai in train), dipthongs (oi in boil) and r-controlled vowels (farm, bird)
As children put together letters to make words, they learn how even small changes (changing mat to man to can) result in completely new words.
To read independently, children must understand the relationship between the sounds in spoken words and the letters that represent those sounds.

From our customer:
I just wanted to let you know that my 5 year old loves the Leapfrog Phonics DVD's. I started her on the Leap Frog Letters when she was 1 1/2 years old. I just bought the 2nd DVD for advance phonics and she loves watching it. This is wonderful; especially when you have forgotten the rules for phonics. Please continue with the DVD Phonic series. Thank You for all you do to help our children learn to read.
