Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree: Level 3: More Songbirds Phonics Teaching Notes by Julia Donaldson, Clare Kirtley

Written by award-winning Julia Donaldson, best-selling author of the Gruffalo, Songbirds Phonics are highly decodable, beautifully illustrated real stories. The Level 3 More Songbirds phonics books revise all phonics previously covered in Songbirds Levels 1+, 2 and 3, and focus on matching a long vowel sound to one common letter pattern: for example, 'ee' as in 'three,' 'ie' as in 'tie' and 'oa' as in 'boat.' These invaluable teaching notes feature flexible activities to suit your classroom needs. They contain guidance on group reading for all 6 of the Level 3 More Songbirds titles: * Ron Rabbit's Big Day * The Wishing Elf * Bob Bug and the Insect Club * Where is the Snail? * Stop Chatting, Bill * Back to Bed They also include helpful tables of the focus phonics in each story, as well as extension activities that have been designed to improve children's language comprehension and word recognition. Also available: * More Songbirds Level 3 Pack of 6 * More Songbirds Level 3 Class Pack of 36 * Level 3-4 eSongbirds Phonics CD-ROM, featuring e-versions of much-loved Songbirds stories for your interactive whiteboard, with audio activities and animations for consolidation and reinforcement.
