AZ FOR MAT MAN® AND ME

And Phonics, Reading, and Me

Letter learning is a multifaceted skill that includes knowledge of letter names, letter sounds, and letter forms. This integral skill, also known as alphabet knowledge, is crucial to early literacy and has been shown to be one of the strongest predictors of later literacy development.  

A–Z for Mat Man and Me teaches alphabet knowledge and seamlessly prepares children for Set A of Phonics, Reading, and Me™, which builds high-utility phonics skills such as short vowels and consonant digraphs.
