- Phonic sounds -
Twenty-six letter sounds of the English alphabet are introduced. Each letter is introduced by its sound, not its name, in order to make the hearing of the words easier.
- Letter formation -
It is important that the child learns the correct formation of each sound, and becomes familiar with proportions and baseline placement of letters. The hollow exit stroke or joining tail helps with the transfer to joined-up writing (cursive).
