What is Tutoring Buddy Letter Sounds?
Tutoring Buddy Letter Sounds is a multi-purpose teaching aid.
It is used to:
1. Identify students who would most benefit from the supplemental instruction
2. Teach letter-sound correspondence effectively and efficiently
3. Monitor student response to the intervention- progress monitoring data is collected and charted automatically.
4. To see what letter sounds are known by all-, some-, or none- of the students in a given class, which can be used to inform whole-group instruction.

Why Letter Sounds?

Research on how people learn to read clearly indicates the importance of letter-sound knowledge. A critical component of learning to read is developing an understanding that letters and combinations of letters are symbols used to represent the sounds of speech. Children without this alphabetic understanding are not able to decode unfamiliar words.
