Singing the Sounds of English - Book & CD

The resources in this series scaffold the development of language, listening, and phonological awareness skills in a careful sequence. The book is sensitive to the Word Detective Talking Pen, which children delight in placing on the print-cues: this triggers the songs to play. This music helps children recognise 45 sounds and sound clusters that they will be learning to read and write.

Through learning to sing these catchy songs, children will tune into the sounds of English and will learn to recognise them in words. The songs also build awareness of rhyme, rhythm and alliteration. They are grouped according to the way in which they are pronounced, as consonant or vowel sounds, short and long.

Great as a classroom resource or home use. The album, without the book, may also be purchased online as MP3 Downloads via the links above.
