Nurture children’s curiosity for words and support their first steps into reading with these engaging early phonics resources. This is not a collection of worksheets or lesson plans but a selection of tried and tested ideas for Phase 1 phonics learning that nurtures enthusiasm through playful activities.
Children will build essential phonological awareness and early phonics skills in an enjoyable and meaningful context by following the adventures of Mr Tig Tog and the mischievous Crispin the Crow. They can explore rhythm, rhyme and steady beat using Beat Babies and begin to link letters and sounds (grapheme-phoneme correspondences), blend and segment through the popular raps and rhymes. Ideal for introducing key concepts of phonics to young learners, these innovative resources can be used to support any phonics programme and link to Phases 1 and 2 of Letter and Sounds.
