Synopsis

Phonic Rhyme Time A Unique Collection of Phonic Rhymes for Precise Practice in Speaking, Reading and Writing by Mary Nash-Wortham

This book solves one time-consuming and frustrating problem that teachers can often experience: finding rhymes which are memorable yet which concentrate exclusively on one specific sound. Many standard rhymes appear to contain identical - or at least similar - sounds. However, such rhymes frequently include sounds that are actually significantly different in formation, and this can cause students considerable confusion. In Phonic Rhyme Time, every verse or phrase has been selected - or written - because it is dedicated to one distinct sound or blend of sounds. The book has an excellent introductory section which describes how speech sounds are produced and which is illustrated with consonant and vowel positions. This makes it an unusual combination of theory and practice. It is invaluable in general language teaching as an extension of vocabulary and spelling work as well as for special needs teaching. The wide range of rhymes means it is suitable for both children and adults, and the clear presentation enables easy selection and varied use of the rhymes. Phonic Rhyme Time is therefore an indispensable resource for school, therapists and students alike. The features of Phonic Rhyme Time include: -suitability for all teachers, therapists and students of speech. -a total of over 200 original and traditional rhymes and verses. -all phonic positions: initial, medial and final are covered independently. -sound blends for beginning, middle and end of words. -separate vowel sound exercises. The book is spiral-bound for convenient use in the classroom. Due to its suitability for adults with learning difficulties, Phonic Rhyme Time was selected by the Book Trust for inclusion in Read-easy 2 (Margaret R Marshall and Dorothy Porter), sponsored by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Reviews

This collection of intelligent rhymes for each sound, and one in which the concentration of sound in each rhyme is so strong, is an invaluable tool for every teacher and student. I have found Phonic Rhyme Time enormously illuminating and thought-provoking. I commend it without reservation.
