This child centred, simple route to reading for pre-school children has been tried and tested with great success over a number of years by the author, a psychology graduate and qualified teacher. The scheme, a distillation of sight reading and the currently favoured synthetic systematic phonics approach, encourages children to learn to read with Sam, a character they will find fun and very easy to identify with.
This scheme allows children to create their own first reading book which is followed by a series of fifteen short stories gradually extending most frequently used words to include the 45 key words to reading advised by the National Literacy Strategy. With pictures to colour and space for drawing, there is plenty of scope for children to have fun making this book their own.
With no punishing schedules to follow, this all inclusive activity book offers a very flexible approach, ensuring an enjoyable and satisfying reading adventure for both you and your child.
