LipSync Moving Sound Formation Cards is an innovative teaching tool designed to help students learn the sounds of the English language. The set is ideal for young children,
early readers, students with speech and language difficulties, and English language learners—in short, anyone who needs practice in phonetics and speech.
There are 42 full-color cards in the set. Each card features a sound associated with a letter or letter combination. These sounds include consonants, short and long vowels, digraphs (letter combinations that stand for one sound, such as sh), diphthongs (sounds made up of two vowel sounds, such as oi), and variant vowels (vowel sounds, such as au, that do not fit into other vowel categories). To help students form a particular sound, the front of
each card presents a close-up view of a mouth. When students tilt the card, they can see the mouth “move” and watch the sound being formed!
Each card is specially designed to teach sound formation, auditory discrimination, and letter-sound relationships.
The Sounds of English
The sounds of the English language are divided into two major categories—consonants and vowels. A consonant sound is one in which the airflow is blocked partially or completely when the sound is made. For example, the sounds of b and m are consonants. A vowel sound is one in which the airflow is not cut off when the sound is produced. The sounds of short a (as in apple) and long i (as in ice) are examples of vowels.
The sounds of English are represented by a single letter or a letter combination. Some sounds may be represented by more than one letter or letter combination. For example, the long a sound may be represented by ai (rain), ay (day), or eigh (eight). Certain letters do not have a unique sound associated with them. The letter c, for example, generally stands for the k sound (cat) or the s sound (city).
Linguists disagree on how many actual sounds there are in the English language. LipSync Moving Sound Formation Cards focuses on the sounds most commonly taught in preschool and elementary school programs.
