Every Pre-K and Kindergarten teacher recognizes the importance of having alphabet letter sets available for student use. The objective is to help students make the letter-sound connection which is essential in decoding. Rimas, decodificando y ortografía is a resource that provides specific strategies in the use of those letter sets to accelerate the learning process. By using rhyming picture-word cards children can employee their auditory and visual senses, combine it with their cognitive ability to put patterns together (the brain automatically does this when provided with sufficient examples) and establish the strategy of thinking in categories instead of thinking in terms of individual words. Rimas, decodificando y ortografía is especially effective because it is actually two resources in one. When used as flash cards the teacher explicitly helps the students make the connection between the pictures and the words: essential for beginning readers and non-readers. When used in a Center, the resource helps the students focus on the sound-letter relationship and on spelling letter combinations (72 rhyming pairs are included). Each application supports the other, resulting in optimal learning.
