ALPHabiTunes teaches the Alphabetic Principle in a format that makes the English Language meaningful and predictable.

Designed with Children in Mind

News Paper Boy It is apparent from research that early intervention (Pre-school, Kindergarten, Year One) holds the greatest hope for reducing the deleterious (harmful) effects of serious reading failure currently believed to impede up to 40% of all our students.

ALPHabiTunes develops the crucial components of the Alphabetic Principle - comprehension and fluency beginning with the letters and their sounds by:

  • developing an understanding of how each letter’s shape reflects its sound(s) and orientation
  • identifying those letters that can say their own names as well as their sounds as 'vowels'
  • demonstrating the vital role that vowels play in the formation of 'syllables'
  • teaching how letters like ‘s’ and ‘x’ acquired the same alternate sound as a result of their ‘behaviour’
  • discovering why and how the letters ‘c’ and ‘g’ change their sounds to mimic the letters - 's’ and ‘j’ Letter A
  • solving the mystery of the letter Y – erroneous dubbed the ‘sometimes vowel’
  • explaining where and why the vowel E - mislabeled as the silent E - chooses to remain silent
  • understanding that words are made up of individual sounds - not a ‘pattern’ of letters
  • learning to match the number of sounds heard in a word to the corresponding number of letters i.e. 3 sounds = 3 letters - b u g = bug
