Carefully prepared lessons use the rhythm and rhyme of poetry to teach phonics. Contains more than 100 read-aloud poems — some by well-known children’s authors, others written specifically for this series — that immerse children in zesty poems to focus attention on selected language sounds. A well-considered teaching apparatus accompanies each poem: word lists using the targeted sound, a "focusing talk" to cement and extend students’ connection to the poem, and an idea for a hands-on activity. Photocopy masters supply "letter cards" for sounds the book targets. Multiple indexes (by a poem’s first line, by title, by sound, and so on) aid ease of use.
An illustrated read-aloud anthology of 115 poems and interactive activities featuring 3 poems per long and short vowel sound, and 2-3 per consonant and initial blend. Great for at-risk, ESL, BL, and adult literacy programs. This poetry collection is meant to be read aloud so that children to hear a particular language sound again and again in word after word -- all within an enticing and meaningful context!
