This comprehensive educational kit has everything you need to help your child as they learn to read, write and spell - all while having fun! This kit uses the cutting-edge system of synthetic phonics, which is a revolutionary, intuitive and fast form of learning. It teaches children pronunciation, reading and spelling skills at the same time, using the 44 sounds that blend to make all the words in the English language. With this system of learning, as your child learns to sound out a word, they will also be able to read and spell it!
