Who are The Little Letter Friends?

  • The Little Letter Friends are 26 characters – one for every letter of the alphabet! Characters include Andy Ant, Candy Cat, Indi Insect, Timmy Turtle and many, many more! They are designed to help children learn about letters and sounds in a child-friendly way. Each characters loves something that begins with the same letter as their name, and the chant and matching action helps children to remember the associated sound.

 

What’s included in this resource?

  • A story featuring all 26 characters, called The Great Letter Fair. It is in PowerPoint format so put it up on your Smartboard and learn about The Little Letter Friends! This story is a great introduction to the characters of Letterville and can be read over and over.
  • 26 short stories (also on PowerPoint so you can put it up on your Smartboard!) starring each one of The Little Letter Friends. Each story features many words beginning with the focus letter, exposing students to hearing the focus sound over and over. (There’s also some great vocabulary that you might like to unpack with your class!)
  • Large posters displaying the letter, the matching character, the chant, and action. For example, Andy Ant loves apples, Andy Ant /a/ (Action: pretend to eat an apple). Bobby Bear loves balls, Bobby Bear /b/ (Action: pretend to bounce a ball). Why not say the chants every day to revise the sounds?
  • Student worksheets for students to complete. Once they learn about a character and their associated sound, students will draw pictures of things that the character would love (that also begin with the focus sound).
  • Small-size cards (4 to a page) of the characters and matching letter. Why not give these to your students (or better yet, have them decorate them?) They are a great reminder of which characters they have met to date.
  • 26 lessons plans: Not sure how best to use this resource? Follow the lesson plans! Remember, they can be done in any order, so align them to your school’s phonics scope and sequence.
