  • The Phonics Handbook

    Susan M. Lloyd

    Product Code: AAMOO
    Other 5 years +
    The Phonics Handbook is a comprehensive resource for teaching reading and writing.

    The Phonics Handbook enables reading to be taught in a simple and straightforward way through an understanding of the 42 main sounds of English. The children can be taken through the stages of recognising the sounds of English, blending sounds to form words, to identifying the sounds in words (phonological awareness) so they can become good spellers. The author writes from considerable experience and there is a wealth of practical hints.

    In this third edition The Phonics Handbook follows the series of skills that are the basis of the Jolly Phonics programme. Tricky Words are included specifically, along with the alternative ways of spelling the vowels.
