Loveable Matt and Molly teach communication and literacy skills with familiar characters, predictable routines, and fun antics. Children develop skills in vocabulary, grammar, representational play, sequencing, reading comprehension, predicting, identifying feelings, answering questions, and determining missing information. The five-program set features theme-based stories for Animals, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.

Each program includes eight stories (total of 40 stories in the set) with:

  • four full-color, 8½" x 11" sequence pictures for each story (32 total pictures)
  • four large-print sentence strips per story that students match to the correct illustrations (32 sentence strips for each program)
  • six wh- and how word cards, a Yes card, and a No card for the question-asking activities
  • a teacher manual with complete lesson plans and teaching techniques designed to engage students in learning. The manual includes:
    • ready-to-use lists of yes/no, wh-, and how questions for each story
    • target vocabulary/concept words
    • teaching suggestions
    • a list of easy-to-find props for role-playing each story sequence

Each lesson follows the same two-day routine and can be used with one student, a small group, or an entire class. Matt and Molly are the main characters of every story, so students begin to consider them good friends as they progress through each lesson.

  • sing the Matt and Molly theme song
