A songbook to support the teaching of phonics through songs, chants and games, ideal for use alongside Letters and Sounds phases 2 and 3. Continues the work of Singing Phonics, which covered Phase 1 first steps in teaching phonics.
Singing Phonics 2 is a song collection designed to support phonics teaching and enrich young children's
experience of language in a fun and interactive way. It follows Singing Phonics.
Singing Phonics 2 is ideal for use with phase 2 and 3 of the phonics programme, Letters and Sounds, published by the Primary National Strategy, but will also be a highly useful addition to any phonics scheme.
Each song or chant is accompanied by a set of activities (including photocopiable resources) and ideas for further development. The pack includes a CD with sample performances. Many songs have
familiar tunes, making Singing Phonics 2 a highly user-friendly resource with no music reading required.
