Teddy Talker Foundation KitThe Teddy Talker™ Foundation Kit enables the child to actually construct the sounds by directly using movable pieces to represent the lips, teeth and tongue. Additional manipulatives represent key elements such as voicing, breath and nasal features. Children build sounds using touch and movement to unlock the mystery of what goes on inside the mouth!
Teddy Talker™ capitalizes on the principle that the rate of retention for learning increases when the learner teaches others. The child is directly involved in both showing and telling Teddy “how” to produce the sounds. As Teddy's "teacher", the child is processing what they learned through several senses.
The front of the board allows construction of sound based on looking at what is visible on Teddy’s mouth. The back of the board allows a child to actually visualize what happens behind Teddy’s teeth, for an “inside” view!
Through the simultaneous introduction of the printed letter, the child can also learn that a single letter can represent a corresponding phoneme.
