PHONICS - A Sounds - Book 1: Improve Your Child's Spelling and Reading Skills

p={color:#000;}.

Copyright © KC Global Enterprises

Shakespir Edition

 

 

In this comprehensive book you will find all the major sounds that start with the vowel letter and sound a. Work through the book with your child and focus on one sound at a time. Read the words with your child, then ask them to spell the words and write them.

Learning how to blend and spell sounds will really help with their spelling, writing and reading skills.

Sometimes the same sound is spelt differently. You will find the different ways to spell blended sounds in this book.

Some of the sounds in this book have more than one page. On the first page for each new sound you will find easier words to spell and sound-out and if there is a second page the words will more difficult.

As teachers with 60 years of combined experience…we know that working through these books with your child will give them the skills they will need to be a good speller, they will find reading easier because their phonic decoding skills will improve greatly and they will make less mistakes when they are writing.

Thank you for helping your child to learn their phonic sounds. You will be able to watch their literary skills and confidence grow.
