Sound Phonics prepares children for full fluency in reading, writing and spelling by providing intensive practice in phonics. A comprehensive phonics resource, it is fully compatible with 'Letters and Sounds' and any other incremental phonics programme. Its graded activities, best completed with an adult, reinforce early literacy skills through listening and speaking, and support a multi-sensory approach. Sound Phonics Phase Four is the fifth book in the series and a one-per-child activity book. It focuses on: consolidating knowledge of the 42 phonemes through intensive practice; saying and blending sounds in a word using 'sound buttons' to support reading; using phoneme frames to support segmenting for spelling; counting phonemes to boost confidence in spelling; forming letter shapes independently
