I use this book to teach letter id, word, and sound. EASY to print, cut in half, and then binde. You say it like this "A (the letter), Apple, /a/ (the sound" and so on with all the letters.
I also made a voice recording and burned it onto a cd for my students of this book. We do this 2x's a day for the 1st month of school plus I send a copy home with every one of my students. By October, almost all of my Kindergarteners know their letters and sounds!!!!!!!!
