Build literacy by reinforcing phonics skills with writing activities. Companion books focus on two skills, sentence and story writing, and feature duplicate word family banks, providing multiple opportunities to use new words. Reproducible activity pages can be used to introduce or review specific phonics skills, including recognition of short and long vowel sounds, r-controlled vowels, diphthongs, and vowel and consonant pairs or digraphs. The repetitive lesson format makes these books ideal for independent learning or homework assignments. Phonetically regular word banks are a handy resource for creating your own classroom word wall.
