The Foundation Kit includes Teddy Talker front and back of bear board, puppet tongue, articulators, cues, speech bubble, learning letters, special carry tote and instructional manual.
Teddy Talker is an innovative tool designed to promote early articulation skills with the connection to print. The Teddy Talker Bear and materials are specifically created to build an auditory, visual, tactile and kinesthetic model by linking phonemes and graphemes in a fun-filled way. This program 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.
Manipulatives represent the lips/teeth and tongue and 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!
