In what order should the alphabet and sounds be taught1

Teaching children the sounds of the alphabet explicitly is the key stone to teaching them to read. Most research agrees that teaching the sound/letter links in alphabetical order is of little help when teaching children to read. In fact, it can make it harder to teach the sounds because if we follow the order of the alphabet most children will revert back to the letter name rather than the sound it makes.
