Oxford Reading Tree: Level 4: More Songbirds Phonics: the Red Man and the Green Man by Julia Donaldson

Written by award-winning author Julia Donaldson, Songbirds Phonics are highly decodable, beautifully illustrated real stories. In The Red Man and the Green Man, the red man and the green man take a break from the traffic lights. The Level 4 More Songbirds phonics books revise all phonics previously covered in Songbirds Levels 1+, 2 and 3. They reinforce the different spelling patterns for the long vowel sounds taught in Songbirds Level 4, for example 'ai' as in 'train.' In addition the spelling patterns 'wr' and 'kn' are taught. The invaluable inside cover notes enable parents/carers and teaching assistants to support children's word recognition and comprehension. Also available: * More Songbirds Level 4 Pack of 6 * More Songbirds Level 4 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.

Julia Donaldson is a celebrated author who the children enjoy so an all-round must. Worth every penny. Literacy co-ordinator, Lydlynch Primary School, Hants.
