Picking up where Phonics Through Poetry left off, this collection of 112 poems focuses on more advanced language sounds, such as three-letter blends, diphthongs, and word endings. Like the first volume, it is meant to be read aloud so that children hear a particular language sound again and again, in word after word, all within an enticing and meaningful context. For each poem there are word lists, hands-on activities, plus unique Focusing Talk TM activities that help you model vocabulary in conversations with children. Phonics Link activities begin formal phonics instruction. The book is indexed title, author, first line, theme, and by sounds.
