Make sure you can pronounce the 44 sounds (phonemes) of English language with this video. It follows the sound desk chart from Smart Kids (https://www.smartkids.com.au/products/44-sounds-desktop). Some synthetic phonics programs pronounce 'qu' as /k/ then /w/ separately. The pronunciation of /w/ and /y/ is the way Australian speech pathologists say it, without the 'uh' sound added. It is also commonly pronounced this way in the UK.
Learn about the theory behind Alphability Sound Cards and how to utilise them in your instruction or home practise.
Use the sound card focus for the week to flip through and say the sounds. If you have previous sound cards, add them for revision (but not too many if it is too much cognitive load for the child.) This is with the alphabet sounds, so if you want to check your pronunciation of these sounds, follow this or mute it for your child to say the sounds along with the video.
