\RULER L A A A R 32 Tear out page workbook. Includes skill-building exercises with delightful illustrations, ideas for practicing the same skills in new and different ways. Also has a skill indentifier at the bottom of each page and an answer key if appropriate. Letters and Sounds helps kindergartners to recognize and write the uppercase and lowercase letters of the alphabet, to understand that each letter represents a sound, and to hear the sound at the beginning of a word. (At this level, only one sound per letter is presented, the short vowel, or the hard consonant.) Children will begin to understand that sounds of letters blend to form the words they will learn to read and write.
