Research shows that rhyme can have dramatic results on reading ability, which in turn leads to better spelling. These rhyming phonic poems focus on dipthongs, not sight words, enabling children to quickly build their phonic knowledge and boost confidence. I have only ever been able to find phonic poems that contain other words that struggling readers cannot read, leading to frustration and a lack of progress.
This first set of phonic poems, covering 12 dipthongs are perfect for remediation and beginning readers. Each poem is illustrated, perfect for visual learners and involves both auditory and verbal learning styles through rhyme patterns and the three worksheets included for each sound. Rhyme helps children detect phonetic constituents of words and improves spelling.

I am a private tutor, with many years’ experience of teaching reading and a First Class Honours Degree in Teaching. Many of the children I teach really struggle and have fallen behind at school. I have great success with these children and work very hard to get them reading. My Reading Tips page (included) gives you some of the reading tips and strategies that I have learned.
I hope that you enjoy this product and that it helps the children you teach!
