Wooden Alphabet


$39.90 per set + p/h

These highy durable wooden apphabet lettsrs are available in UPPER and lower case. Activities with these letters is an important component of a multisensory lesson. Those who attend our training "Teaching Students with Dyslexia" learn how to use this resource with students.


Knowing the alphabet song doesn't mean they know the Alphabet

Many students can say the alphabet song but cannot correspond letters with their names. This is where the wooden letters come in as an important teacher of letter name - letter correspondence. Only when letter names are memorised can the phonics work proceed with real effectiveness.

A student's ability to sequentially order the letters of the alphabet needs to be developed also, as this is a prerequisute to using any resource that has a alphabetised list (dictionaries, encyclopeadias etc.)

Students with dyslexia also need explicit teaching to understand that the letters of the alphabet symbolise speech sounds and that these speech sounds make up words. This insight is known as the alphabetic principle

Games with the alpabet letters are a great way to:

  • Familiarise students with the names and shapes of the letters
  • Help students appreciate the position of each letter in the alphabet as well as its correct orientation
  • Find missing letters to strengthen sequencing 
  • Practice the important concepts of 'forwards', 'backwards,' 'before', 'after', "in front of' and 'behind' that students will need to understand to use spelling rules (e.g. we use 'k' before 'i', 'e', or 'y')
  • Teach the vowels and consonants and the differences between the types of sounds they make in words
  • Strengthen auditory and visual sequential memory of letter names and letters through paired associate learning

Order UPPER CASE alphabet letters 


We use UPPER CASE letters first in the Playberry Program with new and less experienced students. While students are learning the alphabet and the letter names, upper case letters are less confusing because they do not pose b,d,p,q,n,u reversals. Working with wooden letters in the Playberry program is not phonics. We use the wooden letters to help students memorise their sequence, their look, their feel and their correct orientation through visual, auditory and kinaesthetic (VAK) memory systems. Students practice sequencing letters, developing auditory and visual memory for letters of the alphabet and by doing so, memorising them. 


Order LOWER CASE alphabet letters 


We sometimes introduce LOWER CASE letters once students are proficient with upper case. However, in the Playberry program, students are already handwriting in lower case by the time lower case alphabet letters are introduced.
