Sound Tales Series 3-Book Combo





This 3-book combo uses evidence-based practices speech pathologists use when treating sound articulation errors.

Check out what Sonny, Ruby, Lola, and the gang are up to while they learn to read, write, and differentiate the S, R, and L sounds. They can all be tricky sounds, but the Sound Tales crew is there to provide tips along the way!

These books utilize evidence-based practices that are employed in speech therapy sessions and early education classrooms to create a resource that anyone can benefit from. The Sound Tales books are more than your average read-aloud! The reader helps the characters solve a puzzle by using their reading, writing, and phonological awareness skills. A follow-along writing activity is built into each book, along with search and find components for phonemic awareness. By using these methods, kids improve articulation and literacy skills at the same time!

This book was created for teachers, speech pathologists, parents, and kids! 

The following evidence-based practices are applied:

Auditory Bombardment:

The child listens to a target sound over and over in a variety of contexts, but is not required to repeat the sound.  Auditory Bombardment is a listening task that eliminates the pressure of verbal imitation. 

Minimal Pairs and Phoneme Substitution:

A minimal pair is a set of two words that are the same except for one sound (not one letter, one sound). This is similar to rhyming, but the sound can be present anywhere in the word. When children use minimal pairs, they improve their ability to hear the difference between sounds, as well as understand the impact that different sounds can have on word meaning. Minimal pairs also help develop phonemic awareness skills through a practice called phoneme substitution. As children figure out the secret message, they are actually practicing minimal pairs and phoneme substitution. 

Visual Feedback: 

Visual feedback is when a child is able to physically see a result of their attempts at sound production.
