German initial-sound-table, posters, and flashcards

Introduce your students to the initial sounds of German letters with our colorful alphabet posters.

At the beginning, German literacy instruction builds manifold experiences with letters: shape, sound, isolation, analysis, synthetisation, and manipulation.

Letter shapes and sounds are linked to concrete, familiar experiences originating in the child's environment. With increasing decoding skills, like blending, substituting, chunking, and whole word recognition, students will increase their automaticity, accuracy, and fluency. These skills easily transfer between languages. Use our alphabet activities and clap each syllable. Instill a sense of rhythm for the language. Use the rhymes in our app-texts. Students will easily recognize, apply, and memorize the alphabetic principle. Rhythm, rhyme and repetation are the principles of early learning. eKidz.eu guides and supports the literacy and language acquisition process with age-appropriate texts .
