Letter B ~ Alphabet & Phonics Picture Dictionary & Activity Book

This 199 page book has been created with a focus on a specific letter of the alphabet, or in the case of “soft” and “hard” letters i.e. a, c, g etc. a specific sound. It is ideally suited to very early learners, those just commencing their educational journey

Since I am a firm believer in each child developing at his or her own pace I have not specified a typical age group within which to introduce this kind of activity book. Some learners will grasp concepts at a faster pace than others, while others will be comfortable with some of the exercises and may find others a little more challenging. I have aimed to incorporate activities suitable for young children from very young to around Grade 3. Again there is no hard and fast rule.

This book includes Teacher/Parent notes, handwriting practice, letter, picture and word identification, dictionary work, wordsearches, puzzles, mazes, colouring in pages, rhymes, crossword puzzles and quizzes. The child will ideally begin to recognise both the lower and upper case letter, while recognising the sounds attached to pictures, such as in the exercise “Where’s that sound?” Sight word cards are included as per the Word List, as are training lines for word practice. Cutting and pasting pictures is another excellent way for your child to identify the sound that the letter makes.

A section has been included for this purpose, as has another section where your child is asked to draw the picture that the sound (word) makes.

What is phonics

Phonics is learning what sound individual letters make and then blending those sounds into words. The more quickly students can recognize and blend these sounds, the more fluent readers they become.

Note: Early learners may have good phonic skills and still not be good readers. To be a good reader they must use both phonic/ word attack strategies and comprehension strategies. Comprehensive teacher/parent notes included within this book.

Once all the Picture Dictionary Activity Books are completed and uploaded similar books will be uploaded with a focus on word families. New additions will be made to this series of activity books on a weekly basis. Each book may be previewed in its entirety prior to downloading.

With blessings for your educational Journey
