Learning to read starts with understanding that we have an alphabet and that it’s the sounds those letters make that turn sounds into words. One of the first skills a child needs in making this transition is to be able to hear and say the beginning sound of a word. It’s often discovering that they can do this that opens the possibility of reading and writing to young children.
