Guinea Pig Education is proud to be launching an exciting, new revolutionary phonic reading scheme. Learn To Read With Phonics teaches reading rapidly, in as little as six months PROVEN! Children love reading about the humorous adventures of Sam and his friends and colouring in the cartoon pictures. They hardly realise that within each fun story are disguised phonic sounds. Learning to read with Guinea Pig has never been so easy or so much fun. This exciting scheme has been written by a Surrey teacher and tutor catering for the needs of the children she teaches. The scheme works well with young children starting out on reading. At the same time, it is ideal for older children who have failed to reach targets in literacy, for those who have experienced particular learning difficulties or where English is a second language. This scheme helps the student catch up fast. Books 1-6 are a structured course that systematically introduces new sounds, each one building on the ones that went before. Book 3 teaches the sounds, 'ea', 'oa', 'ai', 'ay', 'oi', 'oy' and 'y'. The child is encouraged to read each sound chapter several times and to learn the words using the matching activities with the help of an adult. When he or she is familiar with the material they can move on.
