Sound Phonics Rhymes for Reading by Carol Matchett


Sound Phonics Rhymes for Reading by Carol Matchett

Rhymes for Reading is a collection of 60 photocopiable, phonically decodable rhymes for children working on Phases Two to Four of Letters and Sounds, which enables children to practise and apply phonic knowledge in a 'real' reading context from a very early stage. The rhymes feature a range of simple poetry forms and common Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 themes, such as the seasons, family and school, and can be used throughout the year in phonics sessions and in other areas of learning. Accompanying teaching notes focus on phonic skills, vocabulary and comprehension, and help you to use the rhymes in your phonics teaching. They include: advice on using the rhymes in shared and guided reading; suggestions for practical follow-up activities; ideas for making links to writing; phonic knowledge charts to summarise the graphemes and tricky words in each rhyme; discussion charts to encourage reflection and develop understanding. Designed as a resource to be dipped into, Rhymes for Reading does not have the precise grading of a phonics reading scheme and is suitable for use with any incremental phonics programme.
