The original Letters and Sounds program suggested order for teaching letters is slightly different to the combinations used in most classrooms today, but includes the same letters. The original letters and sounds order consisted of 5 sets of letters:
- Set 1 – s, a, t, p
- Set 2 – i, n, m, d
- Set 3 – g, o, c, k
- Set 4 – ck, e, u, r
- Set 5 – h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss
Over time this order has evolved into the SATPIN letter order, which includes letter order sets:
- set 1 – satpin
- set 2 – ckehrm
- set 3 – dgoulf
- set 4 -bjzwvyxq
In addition to this our research found another set of letter combinations, including:
