This booklet describes creative and imaginative activities that parents can do with children to help them learn phonics, reading and spelling. Many activities can also be used with classes and smaller groups within a school setting and will be of interest to teachers.
As well as 19 different activities to try with your child, the booklet gives a brief explanation of synthetic phonics (as taught in many schools) and provides some straightforward advice on handwriting. There is also a section discussing some tried and tested computer learning software.
The booklet is formatted as a pdf document and is 13 pages in total.
If you want to know how to use a trampoline or "subversive" surfaces to help a child learn reading, spelling and phonics and have fun at the same time, then buy this booklet!
A parent writes "...I think I have turned a corner with helping my daughter at home since receiving your info. And, best bit is, we've both really enjoyed it!"
It is written for the UK market but the same ideas and games can be used (with some spelling differences of course) by any child learning to read and spell in English.
It would also be a useful leaflet for Kindergarten, Reception and Year 1 teachers to print out and give to parents at the start of a school year.
