At Soundbox, we play to read!

Soundbox is a pre-literacy playgroup focused on phonemes, the individual parts of spoken words. For example, the word “cat” can be separated into 3 phonemes.

A step up in learning to read is learning to listen.

In each play session, friends open a Soundbox and explore the “minis” inside to discover a sound pattern! A miniature apple, a tiny alligator, a very small astronaut, an itty bitty axe, and mini alpaca all begin with the same sound!

We play with our minis and learn more about our new sound through activities and games that are both super fun and researched based. We learn how to break words into sound parts, practice sound order, discover sound patterns, and map sounds to letters. These skills are foundational for emerging readers. With each Soundbox they open, our friends take one more step on their journey towards reading!

Come play with us!

** Currently this is NOT a drop-off play group. Adults stay to play. There is no charge for this 4-round session. This session is designed for children who are 4 to 5 years old. There are LOTS of small parts. Not suitable for kids under 4. Adult supervision required at all times.
