Blendable Letter Sounds - "Zed" Version

By Jack Hartmann, Dr. Holly Lane & Dr. Valentina Contesse Last updated 2024/05/24


This video demonstrates how to pronounce letter sounds when teaching reading. When children are learning to read, they need to blend sounds as they decode. Teachers need to ensure that the sounds they are modelling are sounds that can be blended.

Blendable Letter Sounds Song presents each letter sound in a blendable way with the sound and a word association for each letter. Jack demonstrates the blendable sound and the correct mouth formation for each letter sound.

Exciting – this video is a version with <z> pronounced as “zed”, perfect for Canadian classrooms!
