Page 2-10. Sounds.
Learning the sounds is the first step in reading. In thus book the digraph sounds (ai as in aim, oa as in oak, etc) are introduced, which are quite different from the short vowel sounds (a as in at, o as in on, etc).
Page 3, 7, 9, 15. Joined-up (cursive) writing.
The digraph have been joined as an introduction to joined-up (cursive) writing. Joining will help in remembering the order of the two letters in each digraph.
Pages 3, 9, 11-14. Vowels.
Vowels are introduced as a group of sounds that need to be used with care, especially when there are two them together.
Page 3,9. When two vowels go walking the first does the talking.
The comlexities of English spelling are made easier with a few simple rules of which "When two vowels go walking the first does the talking" is one. Examples of this rule are rain, green leaf, tie, coat, toe and cue.
Although this rule has exceptions it is uesful at the early stages.
Page 11-14. Vowel Sound Book.
The child has first been introduced to one way of writing each of the vowels. Now, some alternative ways are shown on these pages, which can be pulled out and made into a Vowel Sound Book. (For example that the ai sound can also be written a-e or ay).
Page 16. Handwriting Practice.
The join yo the letters that begin whit a 'c' shape (a, d, o, g, q) is one of the most difficult because the pencil must stop and then come back to form the lettr.
Page 18. Word Families.
Recognizing word families and rhymes helps with reading and writing.
Page 20. Tricky Words.
Some words have irregular spelling that just has to be learned. The words on this page can be learned
by the "LOOK, COVER, WRITE and CHECK" method. Notice that the child is encouraged to write the tricky word all
in joined-up (cursive). Spellings are remembered better when words are written in joined-up writing. Only encourage this if your school has an early joined-up (cursive) policy.
