PHONICS THROUGH POETRY
Teaching Phonemic Awareness Using Poetry
COMPLETE SET: 2 books with reproducible pages
By Babs Bell Hajdusiewicz. Carefully prepared lessons use the rhythm and rhyme of poetry to teach phonics. Two books each contain more than 100 read-aloud poems—some by well-known children’s authors, others written specifically for this series—that immerse children in zesty poems to focus attention on selected language sounds. A well-considered teaching apparatus accompanies each poem: word lists using the targeted sound, a "focusing talk" to cement and extend students’ connection to the poem, and an idea for a hands-on activity. Photocopy masters supply "letter cards" for sounds the book targets. Multiple indexes (by a poem’s first line, by title, by sound, and so on) aid ease of use. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. Approximately 270 pages each. ©1999.
