The Kindergarteners use the Houghton Mifflin Alpha Friends program to teach the children about the letters and sounds. Each letter has an Alpha Friend character's name to help the children remember. The chart below shows all 26 letters. 

Parents, you can help your child master their letters and sounds by practicing at home using the printable versions of the Alpha Friends and singing the Alpha Friends song! There are also hand motions attached to the letters and song. The hand motions serve as a kinesthetic learning tool and provide the children with a visual prompt.
