Off to Elephant School

By James Preller

Recent research indicates that teaching phonics using onsets and rimes is of benefit to early readers and that such teaching is most successful if it is done in the context of short rhymes. Providing a structured route through the major areas of phonics taught during Years One and Two, this book contains a four-page pull-out of word building manipulatives to give children the experience of handling and reinforcing language. It also includes a variety of kinaesthetic tasks which give children the opportunity to: manipulate sounds to build words; master sentence punctuation; recognize roots and word endings; use rhythm, rhyme and music to develop phonic awareness; and use analogy to spell unfamiliar words.
