This workbook has been prepared especially for first graders, to follow Learning Through Sounds, Book 1. All the sounds taught in Book 1 are reviewed on the first pages of this workbook, and then the consonant blends, long vowels, consonant and vowel digraphs, and some of the dipthongs are introduced and taught. Great care is taken to reinforce and review each sound repeatedly.
The teacher is encouraged to work with her pupils until they recognize each sound automatically the instant they see it. The teacher manual is a crucial resource for the implementation of this programme.
The manual contains complete instructions, plus ideas for games and activities that help the children learn and remember the sounds but at the same time gives flexibility for the teacher to adapt the ideas to fit her way of teaching and her first grade.
The first part of this workbook has no children instructions. They are thoroughly explained in the teacher's.
