    Phonics skills can become nearly impossible tasks in a kindergarten or first grade classroom if children have not previously been exposed to loads and loads of sounds.

    In other words, children must be able to play with the sounds of language — make up nonsense words, make all kinds of animal sounds, tell you what words have rhyming sounds, tell you what words begin with the same sound, and more. And they have to be able to do this on a purely auditory level.
    These type of videos help them allot in learning in their growing stage..
