Sound Phonics prepares children for full fluency in reading, writing and spelling by providing intensive practice in phonics. A comprehensive phonics resource, it is fully compatible with 'Letters and Sounds' and any other incremental phonics programme. Its graded activities, best completed with an adult, reinforce early literacy skills through listening and speaking, and support a multi-sensory approach. Sound Phonics Phase One is the first book in the series and is a reusable stimulus book. Designed for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), it focuses on: developing the child's awareness of environmental sounds; recognising the separate sounds in words (through rhymes/songs/games); sound discrimination, rhythm/rhyme/alliteration; oral blending and segmenting.
