This book is suitable for those children who are commencing their reading and writing
educational journey, ideally preschool to Grade 1, although exercises in cursive
handwriting have been included for the older child. Only about six new words are to be
mastered in each lesson. These new words and the new elementary sounds are always to
be found in the vocabulary of the lesson in which they are first used.
The plan of the book enables the teacher to pursue the Phonic Method, the Word
Method, the Alphabet Method, or any combination of these methods.
There are 52 phonics lessons with a number of fun activities in each lesson. That is one
lesson for every week of the year. At the end of the book are handwriting exercises in
both tracing and cursive handwriting for more common three letter words. The cursive
Alphabet in lower and upper case can be found towards the end of the book, as well as
3 pages of handwriting lines : tracing, cursive and standard lines.
Colourful illustrations have been used throughout, and the skilled teacher will be able to use them to great advantage.
The script exercises throughout the book and the writing exercises at the end have been
specially written and carefully prepared for this book; they may be used to teach the
reading of cursive, and as exercises in learning to write.
I have no doubt that you will find this book a fun, useful and necessary addition to your
Blessings to you and your little one on your educational journey.
