Students develop into proficient readers when they receive systematic, and explicit instruction. A-Z for Mat Man and Me offers both.
- Systematic: Letter Learning lessons for each book are highly structured to teach each letter of the alphabet. Meaning Making lessons reinforce the use of letters in words and stories.
- Explicit: Each letter’s name, sound, and form are explicitly taught, practiced, and applied.

The program's letter sequence was designed to help students start reading as soon as possible. Letters like m, t, and a are taught first, because they occur frequently in simple words, giving students a strong foundation as they explore new words. You can also alter the letter sequence to your liking using the Interactive Teaching Tool.
