Read Write Inc. Phonics: Rag the Rat Book 2a by Ruth Miskin

The Read Write Inc. Phonics storybooks provide structured practice for children in decoding words and reading through phonics. Each set of books is carefully graded so children can read them with confidence. Read Write Inc. Phonics storybooks help parents support their child by: BL Using Ruth Miskin's successful tried-and-tested phonic methodology for reading success BL Offering practical and effective advice in guiding their child through every story BL Building confidence using fun and engaging stories with opportunities for talk and praise throughout The structured phonic stories in Books 2a and 2b are written for parents to plan achievable reading sessions with their child and build reading stamina from Books 1a and 1b. Rag the rat Book 2a, includes the following phonically decodable story-rhymes: 1. Rag the rat - a rat magician conjures up a variety of things including a magic carpet for him and his audience to ride on 2. Jess in a mess - a messy elephant just can't stay clean Every rhyming story uses artwork by Tim Archbold, who uses a style that has been likened Quentin Blake's, which children love. It is recommended that parents use the RWI Phonics Speed Sound Flashcards Set 1 to practice before and alongside children reading any of the RWI story books. Reading steps for success: BL Practise reading the Speed Sounds before each story BL Read the Red and Green words before each story BL Read the story to decode every word BL Re-read the story to reinforce meaning BL Re-read the story for fluency RWI Level in Schools: Although these books have been created for the home market, they have been written to Green Level of the RWI school books. The creator, Ruth Miskin is currently involved in a series of nationwide training programmes for primary schools, commissioned by the UK government's Department for Education and Skills.


Read Write Inc. actually teaches children to read and write. We love using this programme because children achieve so much co quickly. They want to read and write. It's the best literacy programme we have ever known. Lorna Jackson, Headteacher, Maryland Primary School
