There are many elements in the Sound City Reading program that work together to help students learn to read and write. In this post I will talk about A Sound Story About Audrey And Brad. It is available as a separate book with large print and large color pictures. It is also included as a smaller version in the student books.
In these patterns, you do not say the individual letter sounds. You pronounce just one, completely new sound for each of the letter patterns. The sound story also includes alternate sounds for the single vowels: a/raven, a/all, e/begin, o/robot, o/to, u/music, and u/push.
When To Use The Sound Story
The sound story is used with students at all reading levels. The pictures in the story serve as a reference point when teaching the many phonetic patterns in the English language.
