The Letter TV showcases the sound(s) associated with each letter. Cross-curricular content is carefully woven into each program as well. The programs are short segments because research shows that four and five-year-olds can become quite passive while viewing television for longer periods. Teachers are encouraged to use the programs as an integral part of a comprehensive introduction to reading skills.
