Gives a good general understanding of phonics
Phonics is being given a good press at the moment and this book gives a general overview of how it may be taught within primary schools. The vocabulary and language required is explained and used in an easy to follow manner and will be a good way of promoting self study for the trainees.
This book cannot be recommended enough for student teachers who are trying to build their confidence in teaching phonics in primary classrooms.
This is a clear and thoughtfully written book that supports trainee teachers and qualified teachers in understanding the complexity of subject knowledge required to teach phonics effectively.
Another book from this very useful series. The combination of supporting subject knowledge for teaching phonics alongside clear exemplars for lessons that are engaging and contextualised is very helpful for student teachers.
Very pertinent to the teaching and learning of phonics. Particularly useful for those requiring support to teach phase 5 & 6 and to older children beyond KS1. Clearly set out with differentiated activities. Link to TS. Thoughts about using phonics within other curriculum areas.
This book is a useful resource which presents the teaching of phonics within the historical and research context. Exemplar lessons provide a useful starting point for planning and the authors provide helpful prompts to support differentiation and extending the learning.
As with other texts by Waugh, the book will prove invaluable in the support it offers trainee teachers.
This text effectively supports trainee teachers in understanding what good phonics teaching looks like. It makes explicit links to the English Programmes of Study 2014 and the Rose Review which fed into this.
Practical lesson ideas exemplify how to apply the theory, highlighting how phonics teaching can be creative and fun.
